The resurrection of the dead was, as Tertullian says, 'the chief article of the whole Christian faith' (De resurrectione 39.3) and one of those beliefs which most distinguished Christian thought from much other contemporary thinking. This book looks at the way in which post-death existence is represented in the work of the early Church Fathers - notably Athenagoras, Tertullian, and Origen - and the Letter to Rheginos, and how these representations compare with its treatment both in Scripture and in contemporary, modern theological reflection.



Examining these attitudes to life after death, and putting them into conversation with more modern interpretations, the book asks four main questions. Firstly, whether resurrection happens immediately after death. Secondly, if there is continuity or discontinuity of space and time between death and a resurrection life. Thirdly, it explores whether post-death existence was thought to be embodied or not, and if so how might it be embodied. Finally, it addresses the issue of continuity, or discontinuity, of personal identity after death.



This book sheds light on the formation of a key doctrine of Christian faith. As such, it will be of significant interest to scholars and academics working in the History of Religion, Theology and Patristics.

Descriere RO Invierea mortilor a fost, asa cum spune Tertullian, „articolul principal al intregii credinte crestine” (De resurrectione 39.3) si una dintre acele credinte care au deosebit cel mai mult gandirea crestina de multa alta gandire contemporana. Aceasta carte priveste modul in care existenta post-moarte este reprezentata in opera primilor Parinti ai Bisericii - in special Athenagoras, Tertullian si Origen - si Scrisoarea catre Rheginos si modul in care aceste reprezentari se compara cu tratamentul ei atat in Scriptura, cat si in reflectie teologica contemporana, moderna. Examinand aceste atitudini fata de viata de dupa moarte si punandu-le in conversatie cu interpretari mai moderne, cartea pune patru intrebari principale.
