Pilate and Jesus

Giorgio Agamben


The book Pilate and Jesus, the Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben, has a conventional structure by chapters; simply lists consecutively sets paragraphs to number 19. So tentatively proposed below the following thematic structure of the nineteen points forming the main body of the text. From first to sixth, Agamben presents the character of Pilate. The seventh ?? the longest of all point ?? analyzed frame by frame, the process of Jesus narrated in the Gospel of John. From eighth to tenth, Agamben shows off his philological knowledge, and present ?? from points 11 to 16 ?? his hypothesis that it was a process without Juico. The last three points (17-19) would be the conclusions. Almost like a confession, Agamben immediately includes seven glosses, as necessary explanations or additions to a complex text.
