The Humanity of Christ

By Romano Guardini
The Humanity of Christ is Romano Guardini’s invaluable contribution to a psychology of Jesus Christ. Psychological analysis is not without its perils; its observations can result in an individual being placed in a strictly naturalistic, immanent situation, rendering even the notion of transcendence unintelligible. Is a psychology of Christ even possible? Considering that question of urgent importance, Guardini shows how Jesus Christ both embraces and transcends everything merely human—he is the Word made flesh. An essential component of a complete Christology, The Humanity of Christ is in perfect continuity with Pope Benedict XVI’s Jesus of Nazareth trilogy.
Romano Guardini (1885–1968) was a Catholic priest, professor, and author. He taught theology and philosophy at the University of Berlin, University of Tübingen, and University of Munich. Included among his intellectual disciples are Josef Pieper, Luigi Giussani, and Joseph Ratzinger (later Pope Benedict XVI).
