A classic of medieval studies, The Resurrection of the Body in Western Christianity, 200–1336 traces ideas of death and resurrection in early and medieval Christianity. Caroline Walker Bynum explores problems of the body and identity in devotional and theological literature, suggesting that medieval attitudes toward the body still shape modern notions of the individual. This expanded edition includes her 1995 article “Why All the Fuss About the Body? A Medievalist’s Perspective,” which takes a broader perspective on the book’s themes. It also includes a new introduction that explores the context in which the book and article were written, as well as why the Middle Ages matter for how we think about the body and life after death today.

I wrote these things as celebrations of the resurrection. In the hope of the resurrection of the dead. To exorcise death, which we ourselves feed with our flesh. Invocations of joy and beauty. Whoever is joyful and loves beauty fights better. Resurrected bodies are more beautiful warriors because they bring in their hands the colors of the rainbow. And so bodies are transformed into seed which impregnates the earth so the future can be born. . . .

Each Easter time Christians celebrate the resurrection from the dead of our Lord Jesus Christ, but the Bible has a lot to say about the resurrection of each Christian; that is, the resurrection of the body. In fact it is the hope of each and every believer in Jesus Christ. As Paul wrote in Philippians 3:20-21: But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Saviour from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. That being the case, what does the Bible say about The Resurrection of the Body? In this book Bullinger answers that question.
