‘’My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death’’

Description

To appraise the sorrowfulness of Jesus proved to be a fruitful challenge for several theologies of Incarnation, Martyrdom and Passion, especially in the West. This seminar will investigate the manifold reception of the words of Christ at Gethsemane: ‘’My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death’’ (MK 14:34), by Augustine of Hippo, Thomas Aquinas, Thomas More and John Henry Newman. Once the affinities and divergences between them will be brought to light, the seminar will question how far Jesus’ sadness expresses some quality of God. Each student
