De Carnis Resurrectione is certainly one of the most significant and valuable of Tertullian’s writings. It shows more traces of rhetorical training than usual. As Alexander Souter states in the preface, “I cannot name a more suitable introduction to the study of his works than De Carnis Resurrectione.” Before providing the English translation, Souter provides an introduction on the argument itself and on the manuscripts he based his translation on. Includes an index of quotations and references for both the Old and New Testaments and an index of Latin words.
