I spent a large chunk of today checking some of my footnotes in the section I wrote 18 months ago on the theological interpretation of the image and likeness of God in Christian history. All fine until my footnote for a reference to Justin Martyr arguing that the human body was valuable in God’s sight was incomplete – Lost Fragments should have read Fragments of the Lost Work of Justin on the Resurrection. Erk. Spent a while skimming Lost Fragments wondering what I was on when I wrote that part.
Somewhat ironically, for the missing reference speaks of a rejection of those who would spurn the earthly life, the answer was found on the internet. Incarnational, embodied reference found excarnationally. Here’s the source I used to find it: www.earlychristianwritings.com/. Tomorrow I’ll go to the library and haul out a paper tome to peer at.
