Abstract

This chapter examines the behavior and use of emotion by Caiaphas, who served as the prosecutor at the trial of Jesus Christ and who famously ripped his clothes in a rage during his closing argument. Building on the work of Susan Bandes and others, it also looks at the use of emotion by modern prosecutors, and critiques that use.

Keywords: sentencing, religion, prosecution
