["How I Went to Sea," "Harper's Magazine," December 1852]


n. 1 The act of arise from the dead and becoming alive again. 2 (context Christianity English) '''The Resurrection''': The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.


Resurrection is the concept of a living being coming back to life after death. In a number of ancient religions, a dying-and-rising god is a deity which dies and resurrects. The death and resurrection of Jesus, an example of resurrection, is the central focus of Christianity.

As a religious concept, it is used in two distinct respects: a belief in the resurrection of individual souls that is current and ongoing ( Christian idealism, realized eschatology), or else a belief in a singular resurrection of the dead at the end of the world. The resurrection of the dead is a standard eschatological belief in the Abrahamic religions.

Some believe the soul is the actual vehicle by which people are resurrected.

Christian theological debate ensues with regard to what kind of resurrection is factual – either a spiritual resurrection with a spirit body into Heaven, or a material resurrection with a restored human body. While most Christians believe Jesus' resurrection from the dead and ascension to Heaven was in a material body, a very small minority believe it was spiritual.

There are documented rare cases of the return to life of the clinically dead which are classified scientifically as examples of the Lazarus syndrome, a term originating from the Biblical story of the Resurrection of Lazarus.

Resurrection (ballet)

Resurrection is a modern dance solo created by Martha Graham to music by Tibor Harsányi. The piece premiered on March 3, 1929, at the Booth Theatre in New York City. On June 2, 1930, Graham performed another work, Unbalanced, that also used Harsányi's music. Unbalanced does not appear in most Graham chronologies, so it is speculated the two pieces were the same. To confuse things further, a dance critic of the time wrote that Resurrection had previously been titled The Avenger.

Two other new works appeared on the afternoon's program, Adolescence with music by Paul Hindemith, and Danza with a score by Darius Milhaud.

The New York Times' dance critic wrote the work was "composed with complete originality and in faultless form. It builds relentlessly on a striking movement theme to an inevitably foreshadowed climax." The dance's connection to the title was, however, unclear to the reviewer, "it is not spelled out in letters that those who run may read."

The critic for The New York Herald Tribune was even more mystified, "Of the three new numbers offered, Resurrection to music by Harsanvi (sic) was the least definite and effective, a bizarre interpretation in expressionistic vein."

Resurrection (1912 film)

Resurrection is a lost 1912 silent film drama directed by Joseph A. Golden and produced by Adolph Zukor. It is based on the novel, Resurrection (Voskraeseniye) by Count Leo Tolstoy.

Resurrection starred Blanche Walsh, a famous American stage star of the day, who had played in Resurrection on Broadway. This would be Walsh's only film as she died three years later. D. W. Griffith had filmed a version of this story back in 1909. Versions of the story would later be made in 1918 with Pauline Frederick, 1927 with Dolores Del Rio and 1931 with Lupe Velez.
