Abstract

Symbolizations of final parting. On the imagery of the dying Empirical studies show that those nearing death are commonly overtaken by intense imagery. They require appropriate spiritual support during this experience. This paper lays out results from the research project entitled “Hermeneutic of trust at the end of life” and sponsored by the Swiss National Science Foundation as part of the national research program “End of Life” (NFP 67). This project entailed surveying clinical pastoral caregivers in terms of their observations and assessments regarding such occurrences. Besides quantitative results, the study yielded an abundance of qualitative data. Example vignettes in this article demonstrate that near-death imagery is wildly diverse and by no means adheres to a single pattern. That said, it appears essential for spiritual caregivers to recognize certain recurrent themes.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
