Editorial Reviews

"This is a tour de force by a great scholar.... A magisterial account of the doctrinal and institutional history of the early Church, particularly in the east Roman provinces. The easy style, not without a sprinkling of colloquialisms, conceals the author's great learning and enthusiasm for his subject.... Chadwick's book will remain a standard work on the history of early Christianity for the forseeable future."--English Historical Review

"Marked by a monumentality both of scope and detail.... The last great narrative history of the twentieth century in its field."--Times Literary Supplement

"Henry Chadwick's latest book is a contribution to the Oxford History of the Church...His book is, in a number of ways, magnificent."--Journal of Early Christian Studies
