Saint Augustine on the Resurrection of Christ

Teaching, Rhetoric, and Reception

Gerald O'Collins, SJ

  • Examines Augustine's thought on Christ's resurrection and the reception of those ideas in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries
  • Evaluates Augustine's works to present the central importance of faith in Jesus' resurrection from the dead, the agency of Christ's own resurrection, the nature of his risen existence, the impact of his resurrection on others, and his mediatory role as the risen High Priest
  • Investigates Augustine's teaching on and apologetic for the resurrection of Christ in the light of later theology
  • Fills a gap in Augustine studies by focusing on his sophisticated account and defense of Christ's resurrection in ancient Christianity
