Description:
In The Living and the Dead: The Neapolitan Cult of the Skull, Margaret Stratton provides an unusual photographic record that documents these spaces in which Neapolitans of early Christian history sought to preserve emotional connections to the afterlife through rituals in which the tangible skull represents the ephemeral soul.
Among the remarkable underground cemeteries of Naples that Stratton captures in The Living and the Dead are the Catacombs of San Gennaro, the Catacomb San Gaudioso, and il Cimitero delle Fontanelle.
