Ars moriendi (in English, "The Art of Dying") was a book written in about 1415, which offers advice on the procedures of a good death, explaining how to "die well" according to Christian views of the late Middle Ages. Ars moriendi was widely circulated, and was among the first books printed with movable type.[1]

There was an old copy of Ars moriendi on a shelf at Borgin and Burkes, presumably for sale.[2]
