Within the dimly lit room, it is where the casket laid for the funeral and the wake. In image three, the casket is lying on two chairs, suspended in the middle of the room where the funeral is taking place. The only light available was candles, and few were lit around the room. There was usually a pal, drape-like cloth, over the casket, in order to represent the washing away of sins, much like in a baptism. There was no embalming done, and the face was shown as-is during the visitation. It also relates to why we call the “living room” what it is now, a room for the living, with a direct tie to where they kept the body during visitation periods. There was a severe lack of technology compared to now, as all funeral invites were written by hand and sent out. In image four, you can see the desk where Gen. Stephenson’s wife wrote the funeral invitations. It was a very private event, and most invitations would not reach others in time. However, most of the inviting were done by word-of-mouth, but it was mostly for family and close friends at the time. He was a high-profile public figure in the area, and many were devastated by his fast, unexpected death. The bed in Gen. Stephenson’s room is still disrupted to show what they were living like during this time. In image 5, this is where Gen.…

    The Visitation of the Sepulcher Drama is such a unique form of literature, and it is the one I enjoy the most. There is just something about the idea of talented/skilled actors and actresses performing a masterpiece onstage that makes me overjoyed. Many themes also boggle my mind when it comes to drama. One of these themes is theology, or religion. This theme inspires me to do the work of Christ, and to be good to my neighbors. One of the more popular plays of this theme is the play,…

    I think a domestic violence history should definitely be a factor in child custody and visitation. My main reason for feeling this way is not to punish the parent or guardian, but solely for the safety of the child.
