E-Book review:

From Publishers Weekly

Through a scholarly, but surprisingly accessible, synthesis of eschatology, art, anthropology, history and theology, Bynum, a specialist in medieval religion and culture at Columbia and a former MacArthur Fellow, traces the evolution of lay and theological views of the soul's relationship to the body throughout early and medieval Christianity. Her focal points are selected eras that are pivotal in the formation of the Church's core doctrine of the resurrection of the body following its earthly death and, secondly, the impact of that belief upon subsequent attitudes about conversion, burial practice, persecution, social hierarchy and gender. Currently held concepts on "the fate of the body," the author finds, are rooted in Christendom's long past. Indeed, medieval theological precepts, documented here in cited texts, have a familiar ring since they still echo in pulpits everywhere. This is a masterly work of old-fashioned intellectual history.

From Library Journal

In this work, Bynum (history, Columbia Univ.) pursues what she calls "old-fashioned intellectual history." Through study of ancient and medieval writings, burial practices, and social considerations, Bynum finds the body itself the locus of material and spiritual identity. Historical discussions range from material continuity as identity (Tertullian) through resurrection as restoration of bodily wholeness (Augustine) to resurrection as recast vessel (Bernard of Clairvaux). This is dense stuff. Bynum substantially supports her profound assertions, using the philosophical, theological, and historical language of the academy. Familiarity with her other works (Fragmentation and Redemption, Zone Bks., 1990) might be helpful. A truly creative work of inquiry; highly recommended for history, religion, and literature collections in academic libraries.
