Defining a Christian burial


#1

Hi everyone.

How do we define Christian burial? Does it necessarily entail burial and entombment? Would keeping a body on display contradict that?

This question sounds very basic, but I have a couple follow-up questions regarding this; I just wanna establish the groundwork first.
