Lazarus The Miracle of Resurrection in World History


In stock

This final masterwork of Valentin Tomberg (1900–1973) consists of three parts. Part I, “The Seven Miracles of John’s Gospel,” probes deep correlations between the 7 Healing Miracles, the 7 Days of Creation, and the 7 Sacraments. Part II, “The Miracle of the Raising of Lazarus,” juxtaposes the mysteries of forgetting, sleep, and death, with those of remembering, awakening, and resurrection, as a prelude to the eternal words: “Lazarus, Come Forth!” Part III, “The Miracle of Lazarus in Divine-Human History,” leads to the “blinding insight” that Christianity is nothing other than the ongoing resurrection of the totality of Divine-Human History, the Ecclesia universalis.
