Product Description

This fourth volume of New Documents Illustrating Christianity reviews and reproduces a generous sample of Greek Papyri and inscriptions which were first published or reissued in 1979. A particular focus is provided by the several thousand inscriptions from Ephesos published in collected form between 1979 and 1984. As with previous volumes in the series, translations are included along with discussion on points of historical and philological interest relating to the New Testament or to the early history of Christianity. A Judaica section is also included. Some notable entries are: some asiarchs of Ephesos, cannibalism at Alexandria, encouragement to a philosopher, holy days in honour of Artemis, census returns and household structures, Jewish renovation of an amphitheatre, an archisynagogos of Corinth?, a Jewish family from Egypt, in Rome, Sophia, 'the second Phoibe', and beloved brothers.

Publisher's Description

This series seeks to keep New Testament and early church researchers, teachers, and students abreast of emerging documentary evidence by reproducing and reviewing recently published Greek inscriptions and papyri that illumine the context in which the Christian church developed. Produced by the Ancient History Documentary Research Centre at Macquarie University, the New Docs volumes broaden the context of biblical studies and other related fields and provide a better understanding of the historical and social milieus of early Christianity.
