Where can I find information about the death and funeral practices of different ethnic and cultural groups?
We list some here on this site.
ANother resource would be Wikipedia.
This Wikipedia article is about death in the different cultures around the world as well as ethical issues relating to death, such as martyrdom, suicide and euthanasia. Death refers to the permanent termination of life-sustaining processes in an organism, i.e. when all biological systems of a human being cease to operate. Death and its spiritual ramifications are debated in every manner all over the world. Most civilizations dispose of their dead with rituals developed through spiritual traditions.
We wrote an article about some of the more unique and interesting funeral traditions around the world. Maybe it will help.
