  15. ^ About us, The Order of the Good Death, retrieved 2014-12-27, The Order was inspired by several historical concepts of the good death, including the medieval Ars Moriendi (Art of Dying) and the Tibetan Bardo Thodol. The name itself is taken from the 19th century Brazilian sisterhood of African slaves, Irmandade da Nossa Senhora da Boa Morte, or, Sisterhood of Our Lady of the Good Death. 


The group took its name from the Brazilian Order of Our Lady of the Good Death.[15]

The group held its first "death salon" in Los Angeles in 2013.[10][2][11][12][13] Another salon was held in 2014 at St Bartholomew's Hospital Pathology Museum in London by museum curator and Order member Carla Valentine.[14]
