Neither Zombie nor Vampire: The Salvific Reality of the Resurrected Christ (Online)


The Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) sponsors several events each year and previously did not have a unified source of information about university events. The purpose of the Angelicum Events Calendar is to serve as a method for publicizing University-sponsored events that have been approved and scheduled.


La Pontificia Università di San Tommaso d'Aquino (Angelicum) sponsorizza migliaia di eventi ogni anno. Negli scorsi anni non vi era una fonte unificata di informazioni sugli eventi universitari. Lo scopo del Calendario eventi dell'Angelicum è quello di servire come mezzo per la pubblicità degli eventi sponsorizzati dall'Università che sono stati approvati e pianificati.

Angelicum Thomistic Institute – Online Professors Series


Neither Zombie nor Vampire: The Salvific Reality of the Resurrected Christ


Live stream lecture and Q&A by Fr. Ezra Sullivan, OP
The Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas


22 APRIL 2021
7pm live from the Angelicum, Rome
7pm CET / 6pm GMT / 1pm EST


With shocking frankness, St. Paul says that if Christ did not rise from the dead, then our faith is in vain, our hope is in vain, and the teaching of the Church is in vain (1 Cor 15:14). In this presentation, Fr. Ezra will describe the salvific meaning and historical reality of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection, in light of the teachings of St. Thomas Aquinas the Church Fathers. To explain the authenticity of Catholic beliefs, he will contrast them with fictional accounts of creatures that are neither alive nor dead, or that experience a kind of living-death. We will see how, through his divine Sonship and eternal union with the Father and the Holy Spirit, Christ is neither a vampire nor a zombie, but a God-man who lives forever in the flesh.

Fr. Ezra Sullivan is Dominican friar from the Province of St. Joseph in the United States. The author of Habits and Holiness: Ethics, Theology, and Biopsychology, as well as articles on artificial intelligence and Catholic history, at the Angelicum he teaches moral theology, bioethics and psychology.
