Margaret Doherty: The Heart of Living & Dying

Dating back to the fifteenth century, the original handbook for the dying – the Ars Moriendi (the Art of Dying) – provided practical instructions on ‘proper bedside behaviour’ around the dying person.

This ‘proper bedside behaviour’ needed up an update and the Centre for the Art of Dying Well – St Mary’s University has responded by creating a new Deathbed Etiquette. Designed to help friends and family who find themselves, very often unprepared, to be by the bedside of the person they love who is dying.
