Desecularizing Death

<span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>Dying has shifted over the past several hundred years from a religious to a secular process. This is due, in part, to pivotal moments in the West that affect how we experience death. Fourteenth-century Europe’s paradigm for Christian dying was challenged by the Industrial Revolution, the American Civil War, and the rise of a highly technical biomedicine. This paper argues that it might be possible to “desecularize” death through a renewed emphasis on Christian practices of caring for the dying and through the integration of physicians into conversations with their fellow congregants about the preparation for death.</span>
