Scientific studies at prehistoric, protohistoric and early historic Mohawk burial sites indicate that bodies were not burned but buried. In the early historic period burials normally took place away from populated areas in burial grounds, with the body laid fully extended and accompanied by grave go…ods. Burial grounds were often located to the west of a village site and some distance from it, presumably for fear of restless spirits. The grave goods might include a few European items such as a knife or axe, along with native pottery, beads and smoking pipes. ( Full Answer )
This means that he should not worry about burying his dead relative, but to do the work that the Lord had commanded him to do and let his relatives or the villagers worry about burying his dead relative. The lord is saying that all will die eventually, hence "Let the dead bury the dead". Most comm…entaries suggest Jesus meant, "Leave the (spiritual) dead to bury the (physical) dead" (Fitzmyer 1981: 836; Liefeld 1984: 935). In addition to its biblical context stated above it is also used my Marx in The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte. Marx uses it in the context of the social revolution of the 19th century. He utilizes this biblical quote to emphasize the idea that the revolution must not rely on the social models of the past in order to derive its roots, but rather must reject all past illusions (such as religion or bureaucracy) and instead build itself in the present as a modern revolution that springs forth a new system that does posses the faults of past constructs. So in a sense Marx is calling upon the new revolution to remove itself from the historical patterns that have led to the reoccurring rise of the bourgeois. In this sense "let the dead bury the dead" means let the flawed bourgeois social systems die once and for all for their repetitive flaws (let the dead just die, do not keep resurrecting them in the present social system) (Marx 1852: 595) ( Full Answer )

You really can't bury a loved pet inside. It's unhealthful, creates a stench, and is a terrible way to remember a loved pet (not to mention a great cause for eviction). Find some rural area with a nice view and bury them there. Try and make the grave at least 3' deep, to avoid scavengers.
Jehovah's Witnesses bury the dead according to the laws of the local area and in line with Bible principles. The Bible indicates that the dead are not conscious of anything (Ecclesiastes 9:5,10), so we see no ceremonial significance in the leftover dead corpse, after the life is extinquished. All of… our funeral and burial procedures are done entirely to comfort grieving family and friends, and to comply with local laws. Jehovah's witnesses bury their dead with deep respect and in modest style. They don't hold large funerals gatherings and they don't observe funeral customs that clearly contradict Bible principles. For example, they don't pray for the dead so that his or her soul may be rest in peace; they don't burn incense or offerings for the dead;etc. Jehovah's witnesses believe that the dead are dead and will not experience any feeling. (Ecce 9ï¼5;10) So, they will focus more attention to the family members, in which a lot of religious group have neglected. They will pray for the family members so that they will get comfort, help and strength to overcome their grievance. They will also hold a brief meeting in kingdom hall and talks will be given out by elders to comfort the family members. The congregation will take NO fees or fund from the family members of the dead in performing any religious activities. Family members will make all the decisions for the funeral and the dead and none of the congregation members, including the elders will get into the act of these things. They have nothing but respect toward all the decisions made by the family members of the dead. . There is usually a service held at the local congregation Kingdom Hall or a funeral parlour. If the service is held at a Kingdom Hall then the same talk outline is followed every time and is linked below. If the service is held outside of a Kingdom hall then there is a bit more leeway in proceedings. ( Full Answer )

According to Judaism burial is not only an obligation but a Mitzva (a religious law) as well. It is considered kindness and charity to the dead. There are two principals regarding burial according to Judaism. The first and most important principal is to prevent humiliation to the dead. This is why t…he burial ceremony is scheduled as close as possible to the passing. The soul of the deceased is waiting for the body to be buried. It feels sorrow as long as the body is not buried. The second principle in Jewish burial is to console and to take into consideration the mourning family. Because of this, sometimes the burial is postponed for a few days until the family can gather together for the ritual. Another issue is to give condolence to the mourning family which is also considered a mithva (a religious law). The body is cleaned and prepared before burial by special people which are responsible for doing so. Before burial eulogies are said. Then the body is put upon a stretcher and covered with a Talit which is a Jewish prayer shawl. The stretcher is carried by the deceased relatives and/or friends. (If there are non then the deceased is considered Met Miztva which means that any Jew who is able to, must participate in the burial). The deceased is put into a hole in the ground which was dug by the gravediggers and then the deceased relatives cover the grave with soil with shovels. After 30 days a tombstone is put upon the grave. Jew do not bury on Shabbat (the seventh day of the week which is forbidden to have any act of creation on it.) or any other Holiday (for the same reason). ( Full Answer )
Because of this persecution, the Christians were forced to meet in the catacombs, which were long, dark galleries under the city of Rome. There they continued their meetings, baptisms, and even burials for their dead. As a result of the persecution, many of the early Christians were scattered throug…hout the Roman Empire, expediting the cause of evangelism and fulfilling the Lord's commands to make disciples of all nations ( Acts 8:1 , 4-40 , 11:19-26 , Matthew 28:18-20 ). .

Basic reasons: Dead body doesn't have any immunity. So it generates bacteria and other germs which are harmful. Hence, for hygiene purpose, it needs some attention. Options are (a) Use body parts as we do when human kills animals and let the unusable part for scavengers (b) cannibalism - which most… animals in nature also don't do (c) bury them so it gets decomposed without air. Bacteria and other forces in earth will decompose body (d) throw body in water- sea/ river etc.. so it can be used up by water creators (e) cremate the body . Option (a) and (b) are not civilized options.. . (c) Burial is most widely used by Christian, Muslims and Jews.. (e) Cremation is used by Hindus and Buddhist.. ( Full Answer )
Crematorium. a crematorium is a place where bodies are disposed of by burning....you mean cemetery, a place where bodies are buried
Not sure if you are asking, a) what tools they used, or b) what was interred with the deceased. For a), Whatever was available at the time, such as flint or antler picks. For b), That depended on the particular society but many buried their dead with grave-goods of one sort or another such as hunt…ing-weapons, jewellery etc. It's often assumed these items were for use in whatever "afterlife" was held to exist by that society, but we have to be careful not to assume beliefs of ancient people by back-projection of modern beliefs and ideas. So whilst the idea is perfectly plausible, for some societies at least, burying the deceased's possions with him or her was simply a mark of respect: the property belonged to that person so belongs to the body. This lingers in Western funerals today - in putting a favourite small possession or token in the coffin. A few ancient peoples practised more elaborate rites such as cremation (difficult and very unpleasant on an open fire, but still or at least very recent in India) or excarnation. The latter survived into recent history in Tibet and I think among some N. American native tribes: it may seem revolting to us but it was their way of showing their respect for the deceased.

There is no record of Jesus burying the dead. But he did say to a man let the dead bury the dead: Mat 8:21 Another man, who was a disciple, said, "Sir, first let me go back and bury my father." Mat 8:22 "Follow me," Jesus answered, "and let the dead bury their own dead."
Christians generally bury their dead in a sleep-like position to symbolize their belief that the deceased is merely sleeping while waiting for resurrection. 1 Corinthians 15: 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of… an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. Answer: There is a certain natural sentimentality connected with our dead loved ones, which dictates that we honor them with respect and in peaceful burial if possible. Yet, a fair share of Christians were burned at the stake, and a whole varitety of imaginative ways, which left precious little to "lay out" in a coffin. Even Abraham went to certain involved extremes to bury his beloved Sarah (Gen.23). But the main reason to bury the dead is the same for Christians or anyone else. It's to prevent the spread of disease... the fear of which was one of the concerns with the bloated bodies left by the tsunami in Indonesia. The same fear was extant in New Orleans. The same goes for the decomposing bodies in the wake of war. Disease is one of the natural results of war... which are two of the "four horsemen of the Apocalypse," which are ongoing and integral components of sinning man's life on earth. Burial of the dead isn't a sentimental religious exercise... it's practical and necessary. ( Full Answer )

Did the early Christians of Rome bury their dead unlike the Romans who cremated the rich out of spite?
It is very likely that many of the early Christians followed the first-century Jewish practice of placing the bones of their dead in ossuaries, or bone boxes. Certainly, by the third century, we find a widespread Christian practice of using the catacombs for storage of the dead, a practice not unlik…e the use of ossuaries. Romans could bury or burn their dead, but at different times one practice was preferred over another, and family preferences were the deciding factor. The pagan Romans were deeply religious and would have treated their dead with due respect. ( Full Answer )

When you properly dispose of a body after death in the water it is referred to as a "burial at sea". It was a very common practice in the days of old before refrigeration. Ships spent many months at sea and it was the only way to "bury" someone. It was and is still considered an honorable way to be …put to rest by mariners and people living in seafaring countries. It is less common now for whole body burials at sea, most countries do allowed the spreading of ashes though. I do believe vikings preformed burials at sea. ( Full Answer )

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) do not have many unusual religious customs when it comes to burial. They generally follow the customs of their nation or culture, but may alter them a little to suit their religious beliefs. If you attended a Mormon f…uneral, you likely would notice very few differences from other funerals you have attended.. It is traditional for Mormons to be buried wearing white. Adult Mormons are often buried wearing their temple clothes (long sleeve white dresses for women, and white pants with a white long sleeve shirt for men). It is the responsibility of the family, Bishop (for men), or Relief Society President (for women) to dress the deceased, to ensure that they are dressed properly. . It is also customary for Mormons to be buried with other sacred ceremonial Temple items or clothing that they may have owned, although these are usually placed in the casket out of view of those who attend the funeral. Occassionally the family may choose to have these items placed in view of funeral attendees. This is the only time when it is considered acceptable to display these items. As these items are considered extremely sacred, please treat them with respect. . It is traditional among many Mormons in the US to have a 'viewing' prior to the funeral service, in which friends may come pay their final respects and visit with the family. The actual funeral service will be whatever the individual or their family has chosen, and Mormon church buildings are offered free of charge for those who choose to hold their funeral in a church. . At burial, it is customary for a Mormon Bishop to bless and dedicate the gravesite. This is done by simply saying a prayer over the place, and close family and friends are generally invited to this event. . Following a funeral, it is common for the family's congregation to host a luncheon for the funeral attendees. . Mormons are encouraged to be buried, although cremation is acceptable (especially in Asian countries where it is customary). Mormons who are cremated are cremated wearing white, along with their sacred Temple items. If the remains will be placed in a grave or memorial site that site is dedicated just as a gravesite would be. . If you have further questions about Mormon burial requirements or customs, ask a Mormon Bishop. It is his duty to preside over funerals and to understand the requirements for a proper burial.
