Although seldom discussed today, post-mortem ritual ensures proper separation of the spirit (however
defined) from the body to manage underlying, ancient folkloric fear of an “offended soul” vengefully
reanimating its body (a revenant); or disembodied, maliciously wandering the earth. You’ve likely seen
“entertainment” exploit these themes for a few screams! Using this basic anthropology, you’ll be
brought into the paradox presented by biblical resurrection, which partially recasts this mindset, turning
the reanimation taboo into a tenet of positive restoration. You’ll be immersed in a different (and likely
new to you) context of shamanic expression in the Old Testament and mythic transmutation core to
New Testament messianic claims
