  • Mapping the Fourfold Gospel: Textual Geography in the Eusebian Apparatus
    • Abstract: The iconic map of the London Tube is a marvel of practical cartography. The revolutionary design, invented by Harry Beck in 1933 (Figure 1), has now been imitated by numerous transit systems around the world. The Tube map depicts only essential information: The sequence of stops on a given line, intersections with other lines, and whether a station is north or south of the River Thames. The regular spacing of stops on the map does not indicate actual distance along a line. Stops on different lines that look quite far apart can be almost next to each other on the ground—or vice versa. As a result, the map is almost useless at street level. The map is for using the Tube, not navigating London as a whole.1Henry ... Read More

  • Heavenly Visions: Experiencing Euphemia's and Hippolytus's Martyria
    • Abstract: "deus, ecce, deus!"Virgil, Aeneid VI.46Late antique authors Asterius of Amasea, in his eleventh homily (on Saint Euphemia), and Prudentius, in his eleventh passio (on Saint Hippolytus), created elaborate narrations of different martyrdoms working with the written tradition about martyrs and using the literary conventions of their time, which heavily relied on classical authors.1 These authors (and their audiences) were not eyewitnesses to the events of the martyrdoms they describe, yet by knowing the tradition of earlier records and claiming to have access to their sources,2 both were able to construct literary representations of martyrdoms with the sophisticated literary resources they had at their disposal. ...

  • The Wise and the Foolish Virgins: Representations of Vestal Virginity and
           Pagan Chastity by Christian Writers in Late Antiquity
    • Abstract: Pagan ideals of chastity and sexual renunciation may at first glance appear to have been of minor interest to Christian authors in late antiquity. Those writers who came to lay the foundation of Christian theology no doubt preferred to dwell on what they saw as the reprehensible sexual behavior of their alleged religious adversaries.1 Nevertheless, texts from the first five centuries c.e. also contain a number of passages where contemporary pagan ideals and/or ritual prescriptions and practice that would be identified as chastity and virginity were noted and discussed by Christian authors. Largely overlooked or marginalized in much of the recent research on late antique chastity and ideals of virginity, I will ... Read More

  • Palladius of Helenopolis: One Author, Two Ways to Write
    • Abstract: In 1908 in the article devoted to the authorship of the Dialogue on the Life of John Chrysostom, Cuthbert Butler wrote: "I have to say that from mere general style and vocabulary I should not have been led to suspect that the Dialogue is by the author of the Lausiac History."1 He referred to the problem with identification of the author(s) of these two works that went back to Tillemont's Mémoires.2 Butler himself convincingly argued that, on the basis of the ancient tradition and the internal evidence of the Dialogue and Lausiac History, they both were written by the same person, and that person was Palladius (363/364–before 431), bishop of Helenopolis and Aspuna.3 Nevertheless, we have to acknowledge the reason ...

  • Paideia as Humility and Becoming God-like in Dorotheos of Gaza
    • Abstract: This article investigates how the influential Palestinian monk Dorotheos of Gaza (fl. mid-sixth century) conceptualized monastic paideia as a way of life directed towards becoming like God, by drawing attention to his distinctive account of humility.1 Humility was clearly central to monastic self-understanding.2 It harmonizes with early christological thinking, ideologies of asceticism, and has obvious biblical warrant.3 Yet humility was constructed in multiple ways in early Christianity as different thinkers developed myriad ideas, practices, and narratives around the virtue. Even within the bounded set of ascetic literature examined in this article, with its geographic emphasis on Palestinian monasticism ... Read More

  • Christian Women in the Greek Papyri of Egypt to 400 CE by Erica A.
           Mathieson (review)
    • Abstract: Mathieson's volume, based on her doctoral dissertation, is a study of the religious lives of women in early Christian Egypt. The evidence comes from a small group of papyrus texts chosen for their obvious Christian identifiers, such as the inclusion of biblical references, nomina sacra, reference to clergy, or a writer's self-identification as Christian. For each text in the corpus, the author has included the Greek text, a translation, and a commentary that discusses and identifies its Christian elements. Although Mathieson refers to these texts as "texts written by Christian women," she acknowledges wisely that it is often impossible to tell whether the women themselves penned the texts. Of course, if women ... Read More

  • The Practical Christology of Philoxenus of Mabbug by David A. Michelson
           (review)
    • Abstract: For those readers of early Christian literature who are more familiar with the renowned theologian-poets of the Syriac tradition such as Ephrem or Jacob of Sarug, it may come as a surprise to discover that the Syriac author whose extant writings are the most extensive among early Syriac authors is the fifth/sixth-century bishop of Mabbug, Philoxenus. Against the bishop's estimated half a million extant words, the present monograph seems rather slim by comparison, yet nonetheless offers what is certainly the most significant and incisive treatment of his contribution to late ancient Christianity in the East.In place of "merely" studying the christological doctrines held by the bishop, the author rightly insists ...

  • Nonnus of Panopolis. Paraphrasis of the Gospel of John XI by Konstantinos
           Spanoudakis (review)
    • Abstract: The ambitious project aimed at providing a new commented edition of Nonnus's Paraphrase (Par.), which was launched over 25 years ago by Enrico Livrea, has recently moved one step nearer to completion. Spanoudakis's edition of Par. 11 is the 14th volume of the project and the first one to have been published in English.The book is divided into three main parts: the Introduction, Text and Translation, and Commentary. The Introduction starts with an overview of the current status quaestionis of Nonnus and his works (1–5) then continues with a detailed section on the poet's impressive literary inspirations that ranged from Homer to patristic writings, as well as on later poets that were inspired by Nonnus (5–22). Next ... Read More

  • Shared Stories, Rival Tellings: Early Encounters of Jews, Christians, and
           Muslims by Robert C. Gregg (review)
    • Abstract: Robert Gregg's hefty book utilizes religious and cultural history to describe rivalries between Jews, Christians, and Muslims in the late antique and medieval Mediterranean and Near East. He does this by comparing the religious and artistic interpretations of five sets of biblical figures in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam: Cain and Abel, Sarah and Hagar, Joseph and Potiphar's wife, Jonah, and Mary. Gregg surveys 1) the scriptural text; 2) its religious interpretations; and 3) its artistic interpretations. Gregg's approach necessarily flattens out history for the purposes of comparison, with texts drawn from the first century through the thirteenth century and artwork as late as the sixteenth century.Gregg ...

  • A Modest Apostle: Thecla and the History of Women in the Early Church by
           Susan E. Hylen (review)
    • Abstract: While the title suggests a focus exclusively on the Acts of Thecla (ATh), this book is equally about the interpretation of 1 Timothy. In part, this volume represents yet another response to the 1980s scholarship of Virginia Burrus, Stevan Davies, and Dennis MacDonald. The primary point of critique, however, is not the problems associated with retrieving historical women from rhetorical texts, but rather what Hylen takes to be the error of reading the ATh and the Pastoral Epistles as representing "two distinct and conflicting viewpoints on the roles of women in the church" (3). Hylen argues 1) that the ATh and 1 Timothy have far more in common in their attitudes toward women than is typically recognized; and 2) that ... Read More

  • Marcion and the Making of a Heretic. God and Scripture in the Second
           Century by Judith M. Lieu (review)
    • Abstract: Do not read this book if you seek a grand new thesis about Marcion and his significance; do read it if you want a fairly comprehensive consideration of all the significant evidence that we have concerning this enigmatic figure. The comprehensiveness of Lieu's treatment gives this book much of its value, and it will be an indispensable point of reference for future scholarship. At the same time, Lieu's lodestars are caution and the exposure of ambiguity. She also tends to avoid stating clearly her own views and engaging in detailed refutation of those with whom she disagrees. These traits and the rather out of focus comparison of Marcion and Justin that we find through the latter parts of the book will (and should) ... Read More

  • The Text of Marcion's Gospel by Dieter T. Roth (review)
    • Abstract: Since the times of Theodor Zahn and Adolf von Harnack and up to very recently, one had to base one's reading of Marcion's gospel on the cloze that these two scholars had produced in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Since 2013 the situation has radically changed, for Jason BeDuhn has produced his The First New Testament (2013), Matthias Klinghardt his Das älteste Evangelium (2015), and Dieter T. Roth his revised and enlarged 2009 Ph.D. dissertation (University of Edinburgh), supervised by Larry Hurtado and Paul Foster.What makes the latter work stand out from the others is both the traditional trajectory of the Zahn-Harnack "reconstruction" of Marcion's gospel in the form of a "fill-in-the-blank ...

  • The Church of Smyrna: History and Theology of a Primitive Christian
           Community by Mauricio Saavedra Monroy (review)
    • Abstract: This monograph is a re-working of a doctoral dissertation composed by Mauricio Saavedra Monroy, who has taught at the Institutum Patristicum Augustinianum. Taking his inspiration from Paul Trebilco's The Early Christians in Ephesus from Paul to Ignatius (2004), Saavedra has similarly investigated the early Christians "up the road" in Smyrna, though chronologically extending his study to the Council of Nicaea. What emerges is a rich, full-orbed understanding of early Christianity within a particular, local context.The first section investigates early testimonies directly tied to the Smyrnaean Christian community, as well as other sources that indirectly impact one's understanding of their milieu. Saavedra examines ... Read More

  • Universal Salvation in Late Antiquity: Porphyry of Tyre and the
           Pagan-Christian Debate by Michael Bland Simmons (review)
    • Abstract: Taking a traditional view of paganism as dying in the midst of third century crises and doomed to failure by its production of only weak modes of salvation, Simmons's book makes the radical claim that the Platonist philosopher Porphyry of Tyre attempted to develop a universal soteriology that could counter Christian models, which were otherwise clearly superior. Simmons argues that Porphyry responded to the universal soteriology of Origen and then that of Eusebius's Chronicle (the first edition of which Simmons dates to the 280s c.e., in spite of Burgess's now ubiquitously-accepted dating of 306) with his own pagan form of universal salvation for all classes of people. In turn, Porphyry's universal soteriology ... Read More

  • The Mirage of the Saracen. Christians and Nomads in the Sinai Peninsula in
           Late Antiquity by Walter D. Ward (review)
    • Abstract: Following in the footsteps of Daniel F. Caner's disclosure (History and Hagiography from the Late Antique Sinai, 2010) of some of the most important sources for our understanding of the history of the late antique Sinai, Walter Ward has now written a synthesis on the topic. The book, which is a revised version of a 2008 thesis, focuses on the interactions between nomads and Christians in the area, in particular how the negative portrayal of these nomads in some of the sources contributed to Christian identity formation. As such it belongs to a growing number of studies on the Arabs before the rise of Islam (see e.g., J. H. F. Dijkstra, G. Fisher, eds., Inside and Out. Interactions between Rome and the Peoples on ...

  • The Gospel According to Heretics: Discovering Orthodoxy through Early
           Christian Conflicts by David. E. Wilhite (review)
    • Abstract: In The Gospel According to Heretics, David E. Wilhite lays out a balanced and very clear explanation of the christological and Trinitarian debates that led to the clarification of the Church's approved teaching, or orthodoxy. Right from the beginning, he sets the stage with a particularly apropos definition of the gospel: "the intersection of christology and soteriology" (3). What follows from that is an excellent outline of the development of doctrine, focusing on the Christology of each particular heresy.After the Introduction, there is a chapter on each of the major heretics/heresies that forced debate over doctrine in the early Church. Wilhite has chapters on Marcion, "Ebion" (whom Wilhite of course knows ... Read More

  • Literary Territories: Cartographical Thinking in Late Antiquity by Scott
           Fitzgerald Johnson (review)
    • Abstract: Scott Johnson offers a series of studies in what he calls "cartographical thinking." Not only does geography play an important role in late antique artistic practices, but literature also "operates in the same way that a map operates" (1): they both organize and interpret the world, condensing and emphasizing what could be known. Following Christian Jacob's work on the semiotics of ancient cartography, Johnson demonstrates how a similar aesthetic sensibility is at work not just in late antique maps, but in literature more broadly. Across languages and genres, artistic renderings of the oikoumene\, the inhabited world, rely on accumulation, tradition, and authority to create "icons of knowledge" (1). Described ... Read More

  • Spiritual Taxonomies and Ritual Authority: Platonists, Priests, and
           Gnostics in the Third Century C.E. by Heidi Marx-Wolf (review)
    • Abstract: Heidi Marx-Wolf's point of departure in this intriguing monograph is that, in the second century c.e., "spirits were not ordered according to a clear and stable ontological or moral taxonomy" (1). In the following century, this changed: Origen, Porphyry, and Iamblichus "made claims to ritual expertise and called themselves high priests of the highest god . . . add[ing] a new, hieratic dimension to their identity. . . . These philosophers also asserted that they were in a unique position as experts to broker salvation for others" (2). A holistic evaluation of the spiritual taxonomies developed from this competition, then, shows us that all these individuals "were much closer—far more interconnected socially ... Read More
