Title: The Living and the Dead: The Neapolitan Cult
of the Skull
Publisher: Center for American
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.
