          Abstract

          In Christianity the final goal of human life has usually been indicated as seeing God, but not in the sense of really seeing, with bodily senses. From Christology, however, the idea of the body’s desire for ultimate happiness received a new impulse. This article focuses on a crucial moment in its history: the theology of Robert Grosseteste. The appearance of God in the flesh, he claims, was not only needed for saving man, but also fulfilling man, and for fulfilling not only the mind, but also the body. Starting from his innovating argument this article points out how this idea is sustained in his wider theological vision.
