Index of Obituary Cards (108)

The custom of using obituary cards (also san(c)ties or deathpictures called) when a loved one died dates from around 1630.  In the beginning one wrote on the backside some text.  The intention of the card was to be a memory to the deceased one, but certainly an indication to the transitoriness of this earthly life also.  In addition it was used to be an incentive for the people to praying.  Changes in later days emphasized this.  So do we know of so-called ‘indulgence-cards’, ‘charnel-cards’, ‘cross-cards’ and ‘cemetary-cards’.  The indulgence-cards contained a prayer with what you could earn an indulgence.   The charnel-, cross- and cemetary-cards pointed to the inevitable: The Death.   Begin 1900 did the first picture-cards appear, later followed by separate children-cards.  The idea was that children, innocent as they were, did not need any prayers.  In the last 30 years many different forms have developed.  We see now cards with nature photos, abstract drawings and of course with a photograph of the deceased person.   However what remains is the intention to be a memory of the passed away person.  Whatever it may be, the custom of obituary cards is still very much alive.
