Death is extraordinarily complex, but it is important for us to think about death, and to grasp our own idea of our own death. Because death is everywhere and for everyone. So this page will introduce to you about definition of death from different aspects on religion.
The Catholic definition of death is primarily the same as the medical definitions of death, such as brain dead, heart failure, or exhaling of the last breathe. This view on the difinition of death is similar to other major religions of the world like Judaism, and protestantism.
The protestant definition of death is apt to define death in the popular medical terminology and viewpoint of death of the time. Since the medical community's definition of death is mainly brain death at this point in time, Protestant viewpoints more often lie in what happens when a person dies, and the things a person can do in this lifetime to have a better afterlife.
The Judaism does not have any certain criteria that defines death but instead has laws that surround the subject itself. They have laws regarding the prolonging of death so in an instance where someone was lying brain dead in a hospital and machines were more or less keeping this person alive, the Jewish tradition would think of this as wrong because you are not respecting life and you are denying the indicidual death.
