Kálvin tanítása a köztes állapotról, avagy alszanak-e a lelkek a halál után?

Ledán M. István: Kálvin tanítása a köztes állapotról, avagy alszanak-e a lelkek a halál után?. In: Református Szemle 110.3 (2017), 268-280. pp.

In Calvin’s eschatological reflection the intermediate state of the believer is of primary importance. After death the soul leaves body, the body (and only the body) falls into sleep, the soul, however, rests by God. The perfect happiness of the soul is not diminished by the fact
that in this intermediate state one still has to wait for the resurrection. Although Calvin uses platonic terminology in order to clarify his ideas, the scriptural content usually overwrites this platonic terminology. The prudence, ingenuity, critical acumen, erudition, and biblical thinking of Calvin make his eschatological cogitations worthy of (re)considering for his 21st century readers, too.
