Funeral rites

The East Syrian funeral rites share with other eastern rites the feature of having distinct rites for clergy, men, women and children. In this tradition, in its original Middle Eastern setting, the body was taken to the church only in the case of clergy. For lay people the body is prepared in the home, and taken in procession to the place of burial. The body is washed and clothed in a white garment during which several moutwas (psalmody and anthem) are recited. The processional chant follows, with prayers at the grave.
