Crucified Love

Bonaventure's Mysticism of the Crucified Christ

“Ilia Delio’s Crucified Love has become a modern classic in the study of Bonaventure’s Christology and theology of the Cross." — Daniel P. Horan, OFM, author, All God’s Creatures: A Theology of Creationand The Last Words of Jesus: A Meditation on Love and Suffering

In this comprehensive study of St. Bonaventure’s theology of Christ crucified, Sr. Ilia Delio explores the breadth and depth of mediaeval philosophy and theology and she does so in a way that makes it relevant to the twenty-first century.  “In a fragmented, suffering, and power-dominated world, Bonaventure offers a vision that is not only breathtaking in its comprehensiveness but metaphysically grounded in divine goodness and contingent on personal intimacy and relationship. It is a worldview that is critically needed in our time,” writes Delio.
