The theme of Resurrection has continued to prove fascinating for a variety of writers and thinkers, finding expression not only in sacred texts but in other works of literature and the arts. This volume contains the papers from one of the Roehampton Institute London Conferences. In this volume, scholars from a variety of places and varying academic disciplines have addressed the concept of resurrection from a number of critical perspectives. As one might expect, these include analyses of how the resurrection is understood in the biblical and other religious traditions. Also included in this volume are sustained treatments of the concept of resurrection as it appears in various literary texts and other artistic forms of expression.
