Prejudice and Christian Beginnings: Investigating Race, Gender, and Ethnicity in Early Christian Studies
Laura Salah Nasrallah, Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza
Fortress Press - Religion - 319 pages
This interdisciplinary volume addresses this lack by drawing together new essays by prominent scholars in the fields of New Testament, classics, and Jewish studies. These essays examine the intersection of three worlds: First, the construction of gender and race under the Roman Empire; Second, the crucible of nineteenth-century thinking about race and empire in which New Testament and classical studies were given definitive form; And third, the contemporary theoretical frameworks and methods that hold greatest promise for a renewed understanding of the New Testament and early Christian history.
