This fourth and final volume of The Life of Jesus Christ presents extensive meditations on the passion of Christ, a favorite theme for Ludolph’s contemporaries. He then conducts the reader through the events of Easter and Pentecost, concluding with meditations on the return of Christ at the end of time, bringing to a triumphant conclusion the sweep of salvation history begun in the first volume. Along with presenting the final part of the Carthusian’s magisterial work, this volume includes a detailed index to all four volumes.
