This chapter discusses funeral sermons between the 15th and 18th centuries. Before the Reformation, a sermon might be delivered at a mass preceding the burial, at the month's mind, or at an anniversary. During the century after the Reformation, such sermons usually, though not invariably, formed part of the order of burial, preceding the interment itself. In the 18th century sermons occasioned by the deaths of Protestant Dissenters were often delivered some days after the burial.
