The hour of our death by Philippe Ariès( Book )

146 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 3,823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this enduring classic, cultural historian Philippe Ariès brings death out of the shadows and into history's mainstream. He explores how over the last millennium the response to death and dying has changed dramatically in Europe, Western Russia, and America, sometimes initiating, sometimes reflecting social shifts and progress. Under Ariès's incisive scrutiny, Church observances, pilgrimage and penance, and folk beliefs spring into high relief. Archaic funeral ceremonies, the architecture of tombs, and images of the deceased in stone or paint regain often lost meanings; the liber vitae, the artes moriendi, and the danse macabre are stripped of mystery, and their purpose and power made plain. Through a rich array of journals and letters from all periods and classes, as well as religious and secular literature from Dante to Tolstoy and Twain, Aries demonstrates society's concern for reassurance against the finality of death and the individual's search for consolation. Ariès brilliantly analyzes death in the contemporary world in which the hospital, suburban chapel, and crematorium have replaced the bedside, priest, and wake. As his richly documented, finely illustrated, and engagingly written masterpiece confirms, death and dying have inspired much of the literature of--and art that forms--our cultural heritage.--From publisher description
