Living with the Dead in Early Modern England, an Illustrated Lecture with Deborah Harkness
Date: Wednesday, October 28th
Time: 8pm
Admission: $8
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn NY

Harkness will be focusing on how both the scientific and theological beliefs of the time created a worldview in which living depended on dying in quite material ways. The idea that putrefaction led to resurrection, growth, and change had profound implication for the way that people from 1500-1700 organized their living spaces, approached medical cures, and thought about death. She will focus on three lines of inquiry: the movement of the dead through often crowded urban spaces (graves), the belief that the dead were with you in important ways (ghosts), and finally the traffic in mumia and corpses for purposes of creating medicines to heal the body of living patients.

Deborah Harkness is an American scholar, novelist and wine enthusiast, best known as a historian and the author of the "All Souls" Trilogy which begins with The New York Times best selling novel A Discovery of Witches and includes its sequels Shadow of Night and The Book of Life.
