The hour of our death by Philippe Ariès ( Book )
36 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in English and French and held by 2,737 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

Philippe Ariès a déjà publié en 1975, sous le titre ##Essais sur l'histoire de la mort en Occident du Moyen Age à nos jours##, une approche à la magistrale étude qu'il nous livre aujourd'hui. Cette somme d'érudition propose une exploration historique de l'événement de la mort tel qu'il fut perçu et vécu dans les sociétés occidentales au cours des siècles. On y voit évoluer la relation de l'homme avec la mort, la sienne et celle de ses proches, de cette familiarité obligée due à son omniprésence au Moyen Age, jusqu'au maquillage et à l'occultation qui est son lot aujourd'hui dans une civilisation vouée à l'omnipotence médicale
