Product Description

Table fellowship in the ancient Mediterranean was more than food consumption. From Plato on down, banquets held an important place in creating community, sharing values, and connecting with the divine. A social history and theology of table fellowship from Plato to the New Testament. Why did people get together to eat and what did they do while they were at the table? A rich exploration of Greco-Roman, Jewish, and early Christian instances, including the relationship between the Eucharist and the agape meal.
