] And BTW, what is this article fourth about?
Sorry, Constanza, you asked this before, and I didn't have time to follow it up.....
The Thirty-nine Articles of Religion are the basic tenets of the C of E belief. They are listed in the Book of Common Prayer, and in order to attend University, take public office, (and, of course, to become a clergyman) you had to swear that you believed in them, literally.
They are not "credos" as such, in that they are not prayers, and they do not form part of any church service. However, they are similar to credos in content.The version I have (printed in 1970's)is dedicated to his Majesty Charles I, which suggests to me that it is the same 39 articles that applied in JA's life and in Hardy's.
Article four deals with the resurrection of Christ, and states that Christ was literally resurrected, inhabited a body just like any other, after he was crucified. Do you want the exact wording?
And I'm not exactly sure what 'redemptive theology' was......
