Anthropologists who work on the topic of death usually refer to the notion of ‘passage’ to interpret the status of the dead before they incorporate the world of the ancestors. They focus ont the liminal period which enables the transition between the world of the living and the world of the dead in order to describe and explain why the concept of liminality became so central in anthropology of death and questions the use and pertinence of such a concept to understand the cultural issues related to the ‘life of the dead’ during funerary rituals and mourning.Liens Documents
