Summary

Death is very much an interdisciplinary subject that arouses research interest in natural sciences as well as the humanities. Within European historiography it has become a traditional area of research. The cultural history of death is usually understood as a kind of laboratory for understanding the lifestyle and mentality of representatives of a selected historical epoch. Death in this context is seen as a cultural and cultureforming phenomenon. The history of medicine plays an exceptional role in historical science; by definition it stands on the boundary of the humanities and sciences. In recent times we have provided a number of theoretical and methodological basis for the study of death and dying from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Keywords: history of medicine; dying; death; historiography; enlightenment
