What kind and what degree of physical torture did Our Lord suffer during His agony? What was the medical cause of His death? These are the questions the author, an eminent French surgeon, answers in this work, one of the most significant contributions to christological science in modern times. As he says in his Introduction: “Theologians can imagine and describe the moral sufferings which formed part of the Savior’s Passion.... But when the same theologians wish to describe the physical sufferings of Jesus, one is struck with the difficulty which they find in helping us to take part in them.... The truth is that they scarcely understand them.”
It was to document and substantiate with the findings of medical science the theological statement, “Jesus suffered,” that Dr. Barbet began the arduous task of investigating the
effects on His body of all the injuries our Lord suffered at the hands of men, from the Agony in the Garden to the consummation at Calvary.
