About the Authors
  • The mind-body relation was at the forefront of philosophy and theology in late antiquity, a time of great intellectual innovation. This volume, the first integrated history of this important topic, explores ideas about mind and body during this period, considering both pagan and Christian thought about issues such as resurrection, incarnation and asceticism. A series of chapters presents cutting-edge research from multiple perspectives, including history, philosophy, classics and theology. Several chapters survey wider themes which provide context for detailed studies of the work of individual philosophers including Numenius, Pseudo-Dionysius, Damascius and Augustine. Wide-ranging and accessible, with translations given for all texts in the original language, this book will be essential for students and scholars of late antique thought, the history of religion and theology, and the philosophy of mind.

    • The first volume to explore pagan and Christian ideas about mind and body during a time of great intellectual innovation
    • Its interdisciplinary approach will appeal to readers from fields in philosophy, theology and classics, with all translations included
    • Provides an overview of the period as well as chapters dealing with individual themes and figures, allowing detailed understanding of topics in their wider context
