The Christian Archetype: A Jungian Commentary on the Life of Christ
This book presents a much-needed psychological interpretation of images and events central to the Christian myth, which may be understood symbolically in terms of the individuation of modern men and women.
The process of individuation, when it befalls a person, may lead to salvation or calamity. The reader will find here an ordered and graphic amplification of this archetypal process.
In prose and in pictures carefully selected from traditional Christian art, the author illustrates some essential stages – from Annunciation through Crucifixion to Resurrection – both in the life of Christ and in those who by choice or fate become immersed in their own psychological destiny.
