n Dutch Reformed Theological Journal = Nederduitse Gereformeerde Teologiese Tydskrif - Salvation : the pedagogy of affect

Volume 55, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0028-2006


Taking the model of salvation from the Latin , this essay explores the emotional physiology of grace. Drawing upon contemporary work on emotion by affect theorists, cognitive- and neuro-scientists, the essay proceeds through a detailed analysis of the paradigmatic accounts of salvation and its effects in the Annunciation and scenes from the Gospel of Luke. It concludes that salvation is a deep emotional concern and that, while there is no emotion that can be described as non-Christian, there are certain affects that are divine before they are human.
