Can anyone tell me how grief was dealt with in 15th century? I know death was a lot more prevalent but I assume human emotions and feelings of loss and grief have not altered all that much over time that even though people harden to death might not be as sensitive. I think that loosing a beloved spouse,child, parent, or close sibling must of still be painful for them.
So how did the people around the griever? Especially in the case of men I presume that people would just expect him to pull himself together and be stoic about it?
I think I remember they had mourning periods but what I am really trying to find out is what emotional support grieving people got from family and friends.
