Book chapter

Человек XVII в. перед лицом смерти: пример переписки Антуана Арно

С. 102-111.
Аль-Фарадж Е. А.

This article is about letters of Antoine Arnauld (1612-1694), eminent French theologian, an adept of the convent of Port-Royal, written in the occasion of death. Seventeenth century epistolary authors used to develop four consolatory arguments: reasons why we can expect that the deceased could be saved, idea that death isn’t an evil, the necessity to moderate one’s sorrow and, finally, the imperative to obey to God’s will. Our research showed that the originality of Arnauld’s letters is in abundant use evangelic images but also in the references to the important concepts of Augustinian thought.
