  • The Holders of the “Word of Truth”: The Pharisees in Pseudo-Clementine
           Recognitions 1.27–71
    • Abstract: The Pseudo-Clementine literature consists principally of the Homilies, which have come down to us in their original Greek version and the Recognitions.1 Unfortunately, we only know the Latin translation of this latter work made by Rufinus (ca. 345–410 c.e.) and a partial Syriac rendition.2 It is commonly recognized that these works, which were composed in the fourth century c.e., incorporate material from earlier sources.3 Thus there is general scholarly agreement that Recognitions 1.27–714 constitutes a discrete literary unit based on a Jewish-Christian document from the mid-to late second century, originating in Judaea or its environs.5 This section has been identified by some scholars as the Ascents of ...

  • History and Virtue: Contextualizing Exemplarity in Ambrose
    • Abstract: Ambrose’s life and writing shows him intent on constructing a distinctly Christian moral vision driven by exemplarity. One of the techniques he uses to craft this vision is his repeated claim of the remote antiquity of Christianity’s exemplars. Because they antedate all of the great philosophers, these exemplars disclose the most ancient, and therefore truest, insight into the good life. Non-Christian philosophers are thus derivative and present only simulacra of virtue. Not only are Christian exemplars older, Ambrose argues, they are more concrete and convincing than their philosophical rivals. Several scholars have analyzed Ambrose’s apparent hostility to philosophy and have argued that he ... Read More

  • Theodore vs. the “Arians” and the Parable of Humanity’s Creation: A
           Syriac Fragment of Theodore of Mopsuestia’s Commentary on Genesis 1.26
    • Abstract: From the mid-sixth until the early twentieth century, there was little interest in Theodore of Mopsuestia—except in the Church of the East. Now, however, after the relatively recent discovery of a few fragments of his works, curiosity appears to be increasing. In the last fifty years, several editions of these fragments have been published—along with numerous books and articles reassessing his Christology and exegetical method.1 Though sizable treatments of Theodore’s understanding of the imago Dei appeared in 1963 and again in 1999,2 to date, the remnants of the Syriac version of his Commentary on Genesis—including the fragments of Gen 1.26–27, which are particularly important with respect to the imago Dei—have ...

  • “I Think” vs. “The Thought Tells Me”: What Grammar Teaches Us
           about the Monastic Self
    • Abstract: Languages vary enormously in the way in which thinking is grammaticalized, in the significance it is accorded in daily life and how it figures in discourse.1 Notwithstanding this cross-linguistic variability, linguists have pointed to the existence of “finely grained and culture-independent set of analytical categories, anchored in lexical universals,” such as “think,” “feel,” “say,” and “do.”2 As a universal linguistic concept, “think” can be used as a kind of semantic bridge between different conceptual systems embodied in different languages.3 Linguistic interpretations of this basic human activity can thus provide an important source of evidence for uncovering conceptual systems. Accordingly ... Read More

  • Manuscript Transmission as Reception History: The Case of Ephrem the
           Syrian (d. 373)
    • Abstract: Over the last several decades scholars of ancient Christianity and ancient Judaism have increasingly come to focus on the composition of texts in preference to an earlier mode of scholarship that sought to excavate potential earlier kernels from texts. One of the clearest examples of this shift in Jewish studies can be found with the study of the Babylonian Talmud (Bavli). Previous generations of scholars often saw the Bavli as a source from which earlier Amoraic and even Tannaitic material was to be mined; more recent scholars have, however, focused on the Bavli itself.1 Thus, now the work of the Stammaim is not simply viewed as a layer to be peeled away and discarded like the skin of an onion, but, instead ...

Therefore, it comes as no surprise that this story still interests scholars from multiple fields and elicits numerous publications.1 Three volumes have recently emerged that add significantly to current understandings of Perpetua and her fellow martyrs. In what follows, I will briefly summarize the contribution and offer critical engagement with each volume. Then, by way of conclusion, a question for future scholarship will be offered in response to the trend found in these three volumes. Rather than speaking of the Passio of Perpetua (et al.), the contributors to ... Read More

  • Religion, Language, and Community in the Roman Near East: Constantine to
           Muhammad by Fergus Millar (review)
    • Abstract: Fergus Millar is a well-known historian of the Roman Near East who has long engaged with the question of language and identity among the various people subject to Roman rule. Based upon his 2010 Schweich Lectures at the British Academy, this book consists of what he describes as three different essays respectively on the Greek Christian world of late antiquity, Jews and Samaritans in that world, and finally Syrians (writers of Syriac to be more precise) and “Saracens” (and other peoples often identified by scholars as “Arabs”). The chapters are fit between a Prologue that provides a sketch of the shared biblical world of late antiquity and an Epilogue on the emergence of Islam and the question of Arab ... Read More

  • Migrating Tales: The Talmud’s Narratives and Their Historical Context by
           Richard Kalmin (review)
    • Abstract: Recent decades have witnessed significant scholarly exploration of the Persian-ness of the Babylonian Talmud (also known as “the Bavli”). Isaiah Gafni, Yaakov Elman, and Shai Secunda (among others) have sought to embed the primary cultural product of Babylonian Jewry within the broader cultural context of the Persian Empire. Persian language, texts, and traditions have all proven fruitful sources of insight, enabling readers to discern nuances of the Talmudic text that had previously been unappreciated. As preliminary as these studies have been, they delineate an essential agenda for the study of late antiquity in all its dynamism and complexity. Richard Kalmin’s Migrating Tales considers the ...

  • Community Building in the Shepherd of Hermas: A Critical Study of Some Key
           Aspects by Mark Grundeken (review)
    • Abstract: This book is a revised version of author’s dissertation at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and reflects this origin in its scope and structure. Moving away from a reconstruction of historical community(-ies) behind the text of Hermas, this study focuses on the “constructed community,” i.e., the “image of the ‘actual’ (not the ‘ideal’) community” generated within the text (22). Using a historical-critical method, Grundeken seeks to demonstrate his thesis in eleven aspects, organized in three main groups: four aspects of identity—the relation to Judaism, the views on the resurrection, the stance on outsiders, and the position on the authorities; two social aspects—the role of women and “charity”; and five ...

  • One True Life: The Stoics and Early Christians as Rival Traditions by C.
           Kavin Rowe (review)
    • Abstract: This new book by C. Kavin Rowe is extraordinarily ambitious. It constitutes a challenge not only to the manner in which early Christianity and Stoicism have been compared since the rise of historical criticism (and even before), but also to the whole way New Testament scholarship has been working since the second half of the nineteenth century whenever it has moved outside the specifically early Christian (and partly the Jewish) tradition(s) to elucidate the Christian texts. The central thesis critiques what (following Alasdair MacIntyre) Rowe calls “encyclopedic inquiry” (2), which basically attempts to study, say, Stoicism and early Christianity at the same conceptual level. Instead, Rowe contends, to ... Read More

  • Missionary Stories and the Formation of the Syriac Churches by
           Jeanne-Nicole Mellon Saint-Laurent (review)
    • Abstract: This book is a revision of Saint-Laurent’s dissertation. She analyzes the stories of six Syriac figures: “the Acts of Thomas, the Teaching of Addai, the Acts of Mari, the Life of Simeon of Beth Arsham, the Life of Jacob Baradaeus (two versions), and the Life of Aḥdemmeh” (1). She also devotes a chapter to John of Ephesus, the writer of two of the hagiographies. Throughout her book she labels the texts of Acts and Lives as “missionary stories” and “myths.” She sets the following criteria and boundaries for her chosen texts: they are written in Syriac between 300 and 800 c.e., the narratives are set within the Eastern Roman and Sassanian empires, they depict an idealized portrait of the figure under ...

  • The Constancy and Development in the Christology of Theodoret of Cyrrhus
           by Vasilije Vranic (review)
    • Abstract: A simple thesis drives this monograph: Theodoret’s Christology underwent no significant change in content over the course of his career, from before the outbreak of the Nestorian controversy through the Eutychian controversy; only the terminology he used to express his unchanging Christology changed. Part One gives historical context, providing an excellent narrative of the Nestorian and Eutychian controversies and Theodoret’s role in them. In Parts Two and Three Vranic examines three writings, the Expositio rectae fidei (from prior to or the start of the Nestorian controversy), the Refutation of the Twelve Anathemas of Cyril of Alexandria (written at the height of the controversy), and the Eranistes (written ...

  • Augustine’s Early Theology of Image by Gerald P. Boersma (review)
    • Abstract: The description of Christ as the image of God first appeared in Paul’s Epistles, but it was not until the fourth century that the theology of image attracted attention of great theologians of the time such as Augustine. Boersma’s book focuses on Augustine’s early theology of image based on the works written before 391, such as Contra Academicos (2.2.1–2.3; 3.5.11–6.13; 3.17.37–20.45), De soliloquia (especially 2.6.10–7.13), De Genesis contra Manichaeos, De diversis quaestionibus octaginta tribus (51.4 and 74), and De vera religione. Before turning his attention to Augustine, Boersma, in the first part of the book, provides a synthesis of what he calls the pro-Nicene theology of image, together with a short ... Read More
