The dead, the dying, the living, and the hero


New Member
Hello All,
I am interested in learning about how death and live are discussed in Latin. Specifically in reference to influential people such as heroes. For instance, if someone of great value to a community passed suddenly, how would that community honor or remember the fallen. How was suicide discussed? How about the spirit world or spiritual essence of a person? What was ancient beliefs on what happens after death?

I am aware that there were different societies, cultures, and languages etc. I am interested in them all!
