Big question - How do we show respect towards the dead?
Research Viking beliefs about death and the afterlife. Compare the ways in which Vikings of different class and importance were buried, from magnificent Viking ship burials of the wealthy and important, to the underground chambers where poor peasants were buried. Perform a role-play of different Viking burials to illustrate the differences.
Note: Valhalla was the Viking afterlife, where Odin welcomed dead heroes who died in battle. Those who died elsewhere were sent to a dark and frozen world known as Niflheim. Compare Viking beliefs with Catholic beliefs. Discuss the life and dignity of the human person and how when a person dies, their life needs to be celebrated.
(Dignity of the human person)
The Catholic Church proclaims that human life is sacred and that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society. This belief is the foundation of all the principles of our social teaching. We believe that every person is precious, that people are more important than things, and that the measure of every institution is whether it threatens or enhances the life and dignity of the human person.
1 Corinthians 3:16
You are holy, for you are God’s temple and God dwells in you.
Activity: Using J2e, create a presentation comparing Viking beliefs with Catholic beliefs. Discuss the life and dignity of the human person and how when a person dies, their life needs to be celebrated.
