The Christian Archetype: A Jungian Commentary on the Life of Christ (Studies in Jungian Psychology by Jungian Analysts)

Edward F. Edinger


This booklet offers a much-need mental interpretation of pictures and occasions critical to the Christian delusion, that may be understood symbolically by way of the individuation of contemporary women and men.

The strategy of individuation, while it befalls someone, could lead on to salvation or calamity. The reader will locate right here an ordered and image amplification of this archetypal technique.

In prose and in images rigorously chosen from conventional Christian artwork, the writer illustrates a few crucial stages-from Annunciation via Crucifixion to Resurrection-both within the lifetime of Christ and in those that through selection or destiny develop into immersed of their personal mental future.

CONTENTS: Annunciation * Nativity * Flight into Egypt * Baptism * Triumphal access into Jerusalem * final Supper * Gethsemane * Arrest and Trial * Flagellation and Mocking * Crucifixion * Lamentation and Entombment * Resurrection and Ascension * Pentecost * Assumption and Coronation of Mary
