Finns det en social status på kyrkogårdar under medeltiden?


  • Christina Karlsson

Summary, in English

In this essay I will try to find out if there is such a thing as a social status in cemeteries in the medieval ages. My focus will be on S: t Stefan in Lund and S: t Clemens in Helsingborg. To find a social status in the cemeteries can be hard, and that is why I am also comparing grave gods, coffins and the burial traditions. Is it possible to see a social status in these cemeteries? Do grave gods, coffins and burial traditions show signs of a social status?
By analyzing these cemeteries I have those, I will try to make some compare to see if there is a pattern in the cemeteries. I will use books involving churches and cemeteries to get a better picture of the medieval society.
