Closely following the philosopher Richard Kearney’s "The wake of imagination" (1988) and "The poetics of imagining" (1991), the historical trial of the act of imagination is explicated. The implications of this very act of imagination are explored within a postmodern context. The question of the reconstruction of a christology within such apostmodern context, characterised by epistemological undecideahility and depthlessness, is addressed.
