St. Thomas has a consistent response to Cross’s dilemma, but it is hard to make out some of the relevant details of the account. The Thomistic account of immortality requires two claims: 1.) the same soul persists through death 2.) the same person does not persist through death. I waver between seeing the tension between the claims as fatal, as no big deal, and as opening up promising avenues for anthropology that are not yet explored.
