Towers of Silence: avoiding polluting the earth after death

Starts: Wednesday, 11 October 2017

Associate Professor Rosanna Cousins, Department of Psychology, Liverpool Hope University

This talk will draw on knowledge and experience from a recent visit to Yazd, Iran, where physical examples of Zoroastrian practice of disposal of dead bodies for at least 3,000 years, until relatively recently, can still be seen.

Although on one hand a religious custom, there are also societal benefits of this practice in terms of being good public health and hygiene. The talk will also discuss related examples of societal benefit such as the isolation of diseased dying and dead.
