The origin of Saint Jude : A study of the saint of despair (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie handlar om det katolska helgonet Sankt Judas ursprung. Sankt Judas är inom katolsk tradition de hopplösas helgon och i denna studie utreds det samt helgonets identitet utifrån antika textkällor. Syftet var att utforska ett ämne som ännu inte har beforskats. De antika textkällor som användes var de bibliska böckerna och Kyrkohistoria (Historia Ecclesiastica) av Eusebios av Caesarea eftersom att de flesta andra källorna som fanns hade svag tillförlitlighet och trovärdighet. Uppsatsen presenterar först hur helgonet framställs. Sedan behandlas de olika personligheterna bakom helgonet och de olika textkällorna för sig. Med hjälp av hur helgonet framställs idag har det visat sig att Sankt Judas identitet är en harmonisering av tre olika personer i de antika textkällorna samt att helgonets uppgift har tillkommit senare inom kristen tradition.

Abstract [en]

This study is about the origins of the Catholic saint, Saint Jude. In Catholic tradition, Saint Jude is the saint of the hopeless and this study investigates the saints’ identity in ancient text sources. The aim was to explore a topic which has not yet been investigated. The ancient text sources used were the biblical books and Church History (or Historia Ecclesiastica) by Eusebius of Caesarea because most other sources weren’t sufficiently reliable and credible. The thesis first presents how the saint is depicted. Then the different personalities behind the saint and the different text sources are analyzed separately. From how the saint is depicted today it is evident that the saints’ identity is a harmonization of three different people in the ancient text sources and that the saints’ role has emerged in latter Christian tradition.
