Kirsty Schut’s doctoral research focused on the life and works of the Dominican friar John of Naples (d. ca. 1350). She is currently working on a range of topics related to late medieval intellectual life and religiou cultures, and the history of Naples. This paper concerns the closely-linked practices of professio ad succurrendum (joining a religious order on one’s deathbed) and the burial of laypeople in religious habits.
