Christ, Resurrection of

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links

The Gospel miracle, related by the four Evangelists, of Christ's return to life. By His own power He reunited His body and soul, and issued alive from the sealed and guarded tomb, after His dead body had reposed therein from Friday evening until Sunday morning. This fact was predicted by Christ Himself, and offered by Him as the chief sign or proof of His Divine mission and Divinity. The Apostles after Him made it the cardinal point in their teaching, on which hinged the value of the Christian faith. Saint Paul says: "And if Christ be not risen again, then is our preaching vain: and your faith is also vain." (1 Corinthians 15). Among the many masters who have represented this subject in art are: Aldegrever, Baldovinetti, Bellini, Annibale and Agostino Carracci, Contarini, Correggio, El Greco, Fra Angelico, Ghirlandajo, Murillo, Palma, Perugino, Pinturicchio, Pourbus, Rembrandt, Rubens, San Sepolcro, Tintoretto, Titian, Trevisani, Van de Velde, Vasari, Veronese, and Vivarini.
