In this interview, Associate Professor Daniela Rywikova, University of Ostrava, talks about her book ‘Spectrum Mortis, The Image of Death in Late Medieval Bohemian Painting’.  She considers how the people of Bohemia in the medieval period thought about death, represented death, prepared for their own death, and how the worlds of the living dead and the dead were compressed together in ways which are quite different from our own, modern approach to death and dying.
