Abstract

The object of the thesis is to determine whether or not 20th century attitudes to death are different from those commonly held in the 19th century. The 19th century position is described with particular reference to those social conditions which moulded that century's attitude to death. Some 19th century authors are cited. The transition to the 20th century, particularly with regard to medical and social factors, is described. A number of 20th century authors are quoted. The scriptural attitudes to life and death are exegeted and an informal survey of the attitudes to life and death held by the members of three congregations of different denominations is attached as an appendix.
