This fascinating book sets out the beliefs surrounding death and the afterlife in a mainly Catholic Europe, and explores how these shaped attitudes to the visual arts. Townsend reveals how people of every background commissioned devotional works and wore protective jewellery; built tombs and went on pilgrimage - all to improve their soul's chances after death. Fully illustrated with images from a wide range of media including sculpture, jewellery and painting, this is a unique look at the art of death."@en ;
