A resurrected Hector Barbossa.

"Blackbeard. Edward Teach. The pirate all pirates fear. Resurrector of the dead in his spare time."
Jack Sparrow[src]

Resurrection was the concept of a living being coming back to life after death. It is a religious concept, where it is used in a belief in the resurrection of individual souls that is current and ongoing. In a number of ancient religions, a life-death-rebirth deity is a deity which dies and resurrects. The soul is believed by some to be the divine and immortal part of the human being, and some believe it is the actual vehicle by which people are resurrected.


"Why don't that obeah woman bring Jack back the same way she brought back Barbossa?"
"Because Barbossa was only dead. Jack Sparrow is taken, body and soul, to a place not of death, but punishment.
Pintel and Tia Dalma[src]

One of Jack Sparrow's first crewmen Tumen was resurrected by the spirit of Montecuhzoma after he died from the mysterious illness caused by the presence of the spirit of Hernán Cortés.[1] When the young adventurer James Sterling was killed by the insane Spanish admiral Maldonado, his body sank to the bottom of the ocean, where it was found the by the undead pirates of the Armada of the Damned, who used their supernatural powers to reurrect him.[2] Before it became a pirate vessel, the Wicked Wench went down in flames before being resurrected, charred and black, by Davy Jones.[3] Among her powers, the voodoo mystic Tia Dalma possessed the ability to return the dead to life; this was noted about a year after Jack Sparrow killed Hector Barbossa on Isla de Muerta, in which Tia Dalma had brought Barbossa back from the dead to help navigate the weird and haunted shores at World's End.[4][5] Jack Sparrow himself was resurrected after escaping Davy Jones' Locker.[6] Once mere men, Blackbeard used Greek fire, which was part of a voodoo ritual, to bring his zombie officers from beyond the grave.[7]
