Publisher's Description

Frend's masterful survey, here presented with a new Preface and updated bibliographies, traces the historical and theological development of the Christian church from apostolic times through the fifth century. Frend charts the tumultuous and momentous process by which an obscure Palestinian Jewish sect became the official religion of the Roman Empire and achieved, despite conflict, schism, and heresy, a firm organizational, liturgical and doctrinal identity.
