Session 3

Religious organisations and the organisation of death, dying and disposal

In the Nordic countries, the organization of death, in terms of departing with the deceased as well as disposing of dead bodies, is still very much the matter of the majority churches. They conduct the large part of funeral ceremonies, and administer the majority of graveyards and burial grounds. At the same time, this is also a domain of emerging change and transformation. Funeral ceremonies in other settings than the majority churches – or burials without any funeral ceremony – are increasing, and so are other options for disposing of human remains than a “traditional” grave.

Organisation of death is therefore an interesting place to explore how religious transformation also challenges religious organization. In order to do so, we welcome papers on administrative, cultural and ritual practices related to death in relation to majority churches as well as religious minorities and the secular field.
