Alan Segal’s Life After Death: A History of the Afterlife in Western Religion is a masterful exploration of how Western civilizations have defined the afterlife. Here he weaves together biblical and literary scholarship, sociology, history, and philosophy to examine the maps of the afterlife found in Western religious texts and reveals not only what various cultures believed but how their notions reflected their societies’ realities and ideals, and why those beliefs changed over time.

Life After Death has been chosen at University of Minnesota -Twin Cities’s Classical and Near Eastern Studies Dept. Course will be on the Death and the Afterlife in the Ancient World.
