In the article submitted, the author presents the trial of Jesus before Pilate in the interpretation of Giorgio Agamben. This Italian philosopher, analyzing this event, justifies, in fact, it is difficult to call it a process in the strict sense. Admittedly, Agamben refers to the Gospel texts and the apocryphal-literary tradition, but he does so in his own way, interpreting the particular passages freely. In his deliberations, the distance towards the traditional Catholic exegesis is clearly visible. Therefore, in the second part of the article, the author confronts the vision of the trial of Jesus before Pilate, which is presented by Agamben, with the view present in the latest exegetical and theological literature. The entire analysis is closed with conclusions.
