By José Saramago

O livro conta uma história humanizada da vida de Jesus e alude a uma sua eventual relação com Maria Madalena (no livro, foi com ela que Jesus "conheceu o amor da carne e nele se reconheceu homem"). Ao adoptar essa perspectiva, de humanização de Cristo, distante da representação tradicional do Evangelho e evidenciando o seu caráter frágil e vulnerável, Saramago coloca que a propagada história da crucificação de Jesus, "um revulsivo area of expertise, qualquer coisa capaz de chocar as sensibilidades e arrebatar os sentimentos", resultou na imposição de "uma história interminável de ferro e de sangue, de fogo e de cinzas, um mar infinito de sofrimento e de lágrimas", de acordo com a sua visão de mundo, segundo a qual “por causa e em nome de Deus é que se tem permitido e justificado tudo, principalmente o mais horrendo e cruel", e que, "no fundo, o problema não é um Deus que não existe, mas a religião que o proclama. Denuncio as religiões, todas as religiões, por nocivas à Humanidade. São palavras duras, mas há que dizê-las". Isso levou a que o livro fosse considerado ofensivo por diversos sectores da comunidade católica, a que ele sofresse perseguição religiosa em seu próprio país, e a que o governo português, pressionado pela Igreja Católica e por meio do então Subsecretário de Estado da Cultura de Portugal, Sousa Lara, vetasse este livro de uma lista de romances portugueses candidatos a um prémio literário europeu por "atentar contra an ethical cristã".
Em reacção a este acto do Subsecretário de Estado, que considerou censório, Saramago abandonou Portugal, passando a residir na ilha de Lanzarote, Ilhas Canárias, onde permaneceu até a sua morte.
