Suffering for the Love of God: Adam, Job, Theotokos and Christ

Kateřina Kutarňová, University of South Bohemia

The paper attempts to see the question of the 'suffering of the just' in the theological perspective of the Book of Job, seeing Job in contrast to the First Man. Furthermore, it explores the possibility of understanding Job not only as a typos of Christ but also as the typos of the Most Holy Mother of God. Beside the biblical texts themselves the essay is strongly influenced by the though of Thomas Aquinas.
