Christians take an immortal soul for granted. But how did this belief arise? The question of what happens after death has, and always will have, a considerable significance as a way of focusing our fears and hopes and our attempts to interpret life and death in this world. Is death the end? Can we make sense of a resurrected body? How can we be both in the graveyard and in heaven after death? Simon Tugwell explores the concept of human immortality and its role in Christian theology. He draws first upon a wide range of classical references -- among them Homer, Plato and Euripides -- then considers how this doctrine is treated by the fathers of the church, and by the great medieval thinkers -- most notably St. Thomas Aquinas.
