Review quote

"Frederick Paxton's careful examination of the rituals surrounding dying and death in the early medieval west, particularly in the Carolingian realm, not only enhances our comprehension of the most formative period in the evolution of the Latin liturgy of death, it casts new light on the wide range of traditions involved in the development of Carolingian culture." Celia M. Chazelle, Princeton, The Journal of Religion, Vol. 72, No. 4, October 1992"
