  • “Finding” the Gospel of Thomas in Edessa
    • Abstract: . . . even the scholar who unearths a once-lost manuscript produces the “found” text in a context already prepared for it, for that is the real meaning of finding a new text.1 When the Nag Hammadi Codices emerged in the late 1940s, attention focused immediately upon an unfamiliar collection of sayings attributed to Jesus, identified by subscription as “The Gospel according to Thomas.”2 Seventy years and hundreds of publications later,3 one would be hard pressed to overstate the stature that the Gospel of Thomas holds in New Testament and early Christian studies. “[T]he Gospel of Thomas needs, as the old cliché goes, no introduction”;4 “[It] is the noncanonical gospel par excellence,”5 “without question ...

  • “Symbolic Interpretation Is Most Useful”: Clement of Alexandria’s
           Scriptural Imagination
    • Abstract: The mode of symbolic interpretation is most useful in many respects. It assists one to right theology and to piety, and it allows one to show understanding, to exercise brevity, and to display wisdom.1 To speak of the “Christian imagination” is to indicate that Scripture provided a resource for thinking about the structure of the world and our perception and understanding of it. The better we understand the process of adapting (and transforming) technical terminologies and persuasive non-Christian ideas to read the resource of the plain sense, the better we understand early Christian “theology.”2 As Johannes Munck suggested quite some time ago, “any discussion of Clement’s thought must begin ...

  • “To Try to Bring the Divine in Us Back Up to the Divine in the All”:
           The Gnostic Background of Plotinus’s Last Words
    • Abstract: The imperial Roman intelligentsia had a particular fondness for the pithy deathbed utterance, of which the oft-cited ultima verba of the emperor Vespasian— “Oh dear, I feel I am becoming a god”—is only the best-known example.1 It is therefore not surprising to encounter this literary topos in Porphyry’s account of the last moments of Plotinus’s life. Yet the type of dark humor evident in the emperor’s utterance is entirely absent from the account of Plotinus’s last moments, which bespeaks instead a scene of abject misery. According to Porphyry, towards the end of his life Plotinus suffered from a horribly debilitating disease, and as a consequence, had been almost completely abandoned by his pupils, with the sole ...

  • Shenoute’s Feast: Monastic Ideology, Lay Piety, and the Discourse of
           Food in Late Antiquity
    • Abstract: A biological truth lies at the heart of all commensal values: If you are what you eat, then you share a bodily identity with those who share your meal. Across the ancient Mediterranean, the common meal is regarded as an expression of the social unity that stems from this common identity. But at the same time, the wealth inequality, differentiated cuisine, and complex food systems of this world ensure that food divides people as much as—or more than—it unites them. The moral discourse of food in antiquity manipulates the tensions inherent in these social realities, as philosophers and theologians articulate their visions of the ideal community that is both universalized and correctly ordered through its ...

  • Abundance, Luxuria, and Sin in Late Antique Historiography
    • Abstract: In late antiquity, Christian writers, beginning with Eusebius in the fourth century, borrowed from scripture and from classical tradition to formulate a new way of understanding history. Recent years have seen welcome studies of the ways in which these Christian writers drew on classical rhetoric in the creation of this new genre.1 This paper will detail one particular way in which classical rhetoric was adapted and recontextualized in late antique historiography. Roman historians were of the opinion that abundance and wealth lead almost inevitably to luxuria (excess, extravagance), which in turn led to softness, femininity and military weakness. This mechanism was used particularly to explain the decline of ... Read More

    • Abstract: Against the traditional interpretation of Theoderic “the Great” as a “barbarian” king, ruler of “Ostrogothic Italy,” Jonathan Arnold presents the bold argument that, rather (as the title of the book indicates), Theoderic restored and continued the Roman Empire in the West. He thus implicitly sees the reign of Theoderic’s predecessor, Odovacer (r. 476–93), as a parenthetical anomaly in the history of the late fifth-century West, against the notion of decline or of the end of the Western Roman Empire. This historiographical positioning contrasts with recent attempts to revive catastrophist interpretations and particularly with the most recent interpretation of Theoderic’s reign (S. Lafferty, Law and Society in ... Read More

  • John Chrysostom on Divine Pedagogy: The Coherence of his Theology and
           Preaching by David Rylaarsdam (review)
    • Abstract: One of the more welcome developments of the last decade or so in early Christian studies has been the sustained attention sermons long neglected have received. After all, this is a vast body of ancient literature that has been overlooked too often or only consulted as evidence confirming what has been discovered elsewhere. David Rylaarsdam’s monograph marks a significant advance not only in our understanding of John Chrysostom, but also of early Christian sermons in general, and of the strategies employed by Christian leaders as they made their own the practices of Greco-Roman philosophers and rhetoricians. Rylaarsdam’s analysis yields a strongly sympathetic and positive reading of Chrysostom. It is not a ... Read More

  • The Original Bishops: Office and Order in the First Christian Communities
           by Alistair C. Stewart (review)
    • Abstract: Alistair Stewart (formerly Stewart-Sykes) is a well-known scholar on church-order literature of early Christianity. In this volume he goes back to the very origins of patterns of order within Christianity as found in the first generations of Christianity reflected in the New Testament and the immediate post–New Testament environment. The aim is to trace the emergence of the monoepiscopate, that is, the situation of having one office holder responsible for more than one congregation and having subordinate office holders under him (and not just a term for a leader over a single congregation). Quite possibly for the first time in my academic experience, I have read a ground-breaking work of seismic or ... Read More

  • Sacred Founders: Women, Men, and Gods in the Discourse of Imperial
           Founding, Rome through Early Byzantium by Diliana N. Angelova (review)
    • Abstract: The cumbersome title should not deter scholars from reading this fine book carefully. In it Angelova investigates the discourse of “sacred founders” as a means of legitimizing imperial authority. At the center of this discourse lie Emperor Constantine I and his mother Helena, who, according to Angelova, were viewed by later Byzantines as the founders of the Christian Roman Empire and thus became models for later sovereigns. The book is divided into three parts, comprising ten chapters in total, along with the requisite Introduction and Conclusion. The first part (“The Founding Discourses of Imperial Rome,” Chapters 1–3) investigates the origins and precedents of the discourse from the Roman imperial era in ... Read More

  • Christian Oxyrhynchus: Texts, Documents, and Sources ed. by Lincoln H.
           Blumell and Thomas A. Wayment (review)
    • Abstract: Christian origins and New Testament enthusiasts will encounter within this volume the primary surviving Greek papyri from Oxyrhynchus, the Egyptian darling-child of every papyrologist and the principal source of Greco-Roman era manuscripts. Whereas editors have compiled various anthologies of texts, translations and images of ancient Christian literature, this monograph capitalizes on the systematic excavation and publication of the ancient city’s papyri in a defined-yet-comprehensive survey of ancient material culture and literature, selecting witnesses to the city’s Christian legacy. In terms of the total papyrological picture, one could contextualize the current collection by noting that “53 of 127 New ... Read More

  • Neither Jew nor Greek: A Contested Identity by James D. G. Dunn (review)
    • Abstract: In the first volume of his account of the beginnings of Christianity through its literature (Jesus Remembered, 2003), James Dunn proposed a way of reading the Gospels that re-envisioned the conventional analyses of source, literary form, and redaction criticism through the lens of understanding the oral handing-down of tradition as an act of faithful remembering and re-remembering in new settings and to answer new questions. On this foundation he offered an account of the ministry and self-understanding of Jesus, and of their outcome both in the experience of his death and resurrection, and in the continuing possibility for later disciples to encounter him through that tradition. The second volume (Beginning ... Read More

  • Debates over the Resurrection of the Dead: Constructing Early Christian
           Identity by Outi Lehtipuu (review)
    • Abstract: This book analyzes debates about the resurrection of the dead from the second to fourth centuries as a social phenomenon. This is familiar territory, with numerous studies appearing in recent years, especially Bynum, Wright, Setzer, Vincent, Petrey, and several edited volumes. The sociological lens the author applies for evaluating early Christian differences is also familiar. The author argues that the debates about the resurrection were useful for establishing “identity” and “maintaining boundaries” between insiders and outsiders (2). Studies by King, Boyarin, Lieu, Buell, and others have popularized this approach. In Lehtipuu’s analysis, the dual functions of “group demarcation” and “identity construction” ... Read More

  • Rome’s Christian Empress: Galla Placidia Rules at the Twilight of the
           Empire by Joyce E. Salisbury (review)
    • Abstract: In studies on late antiquity, there has been a strong focus on the fourth century, on Constantine, and on the emergence of Christianity. This book by Joyce Salisbury is part of an increasing scholarly concentration on the fifth century, which in its own right can be seen as an age of transformation, different from the fourth century. In her book, Salisbury analyzes the life of Galla Placidia, daughter of the emperor Theodosius the Great and half-sister of Arcadius and Honorius, who succeeded their father in the East and West, respectively. The author stresses that Galla Placidia has not sufficiently been valued for her contributions to the functioning of the imperial house, especially in the West in the ... Read More

  • Canon Law and Episcopal Authority: The Canons of Antioch and Serdica by
           Christopher W. B. Stephens (review)
    • Abstract: The post-Nicene church, until at least the 350s, was much less occupied by purely doctrinal controversies than the traditional narrative allows; the canons of Serdica should be seen as a direct response to the canons of Antioch; and the rise of Constantine provided an entirely new, universal model of leadership that would be taken up in different ways by both East and West, foreshadowing much future conflict. These are the central theses of Stephens’s Canon Law and Episcopal Authority, a work that has the unusual distinction of being of interest to historians, theologians, and canonists alike. The starting point for Stephens’s analysis is the venerable problem of the dating of the canons of the ... Read More

  • Constantino, ¿el primer emperador cristiano' Religión y política en
           el siglo IV ed. by Josep Vilella Masana (review)
    • Abstract: Next to Julius Caesar, perhaps no other Roman emperor has been commented about more than Constantine, and he remains a controversial figure among modern historians. In 2012 and 2013, two academic conferences convened on the 1700th anniversary of the Edict of Milan: the first in Barcelona and the other in Niš, Serbia. The present volume contains the papers that were delivered at the Barcelona conference. Although Constantine was never elevated to sainthood in the West—as he was in the Orthodox churches—he was promoted nevertheless as a “model” Christian ruler, notably beginning in the converted early Germanic kingdoms. We find this idealized Constantine promoted in the works of Gregory of Tours ... Read More

  • Law and Legality in the Greek East: The Byzantine Canonical Tradition,
           381–883 by David Wagschal (review)
    • Abstract: This is an important book, which makes the Byzantine canonical tradition more interesting to Byzantinists and more respectable to legal historians, while contextualizing its uniqueness for those who still live it in the Orthodox churches. Law and legality do not excite most people who are drawn to study Byzantium for its material culture, its intellectual legacy, and its imperial politics, while Byzantine legal literature is difficult to mine for evidence of Byzantine norms. Legal historians, with the partial exception of the “Frankfurt School,” have treated the Byzantine legal tradition as a degenerate residue of Roman Law, with a canonical component that is beneath consideration. This is in contrast to the ... Read More

  • Maximus the Confessor: Jesus Christ and the Transfiguration of the World
           by Paul M. Blowers (review)
    • Abstract: Several key works on Maximus the Confessor (d. 662), the great synthesist of the early Byzantine tradition, have been published this millennium, including those by Philipp Renczes (2003); Demetrios Bathrellos (2004); Pascal Mueller-Jourdan (2005); Adam Cooper (2005); Melchisedec Törönen (2007); Torstein Tollefsen (2008); Cyril Hovorun (2008), and the conference proceedings edited by Maxim Vasiljević (2013). All of these are theological in focus, except for Mueller-Jourdan, who takes as his foundation the philosophical tradition to which Maximus belongs. The essayists in the recently published Oxford Handbook of Maximus the Confessor [OHMC] (2015) aim to give a theological and philosophical introduction to ... Read More

  • The Demonic in the Political Thought of Eusebius of Caesarea by Hazel
           Johannessen (review)
    • Abstract: Eusebius’s voluminous writings constitute the most extensive discourses about Christianity in the early fourth century. Unfortunately, the Caesarean scholar has long been described as promoting opportunistic apologetics, ruthless Constantinian politics, and a triumphalist realized eschatology at what was seen as a uniquely secure moment for Christians in the Roman Empire. As Hazel Johannessen’s new study demonstrates, however, these assessments rely on selective readings of Eusebius’s works. Although Johannessen claims modestly to cast her net after Eusebian demonology, her attentive identification and interpretation of numerous demonic appearances in Eusebius’s works, in sensitive dialogue with contemporary ...

  • Incorruptible Bodies: Christology, Society, and Authority in Late
           Antiquity by Yonatan Moss (review)
    • Abstract: Though Incorruptible Bodies does not claim to be a biography, its central accomplishment is to offer about Severus of Antioch (and to a lesser extent, about his interlocutor Julian of Halicarnassus) the kind of insight one usually sees in biographical research. Traditionally, historians of sixth-century Christianity in the eastern Mediterranean depend on John of Ephesus’s portrait of Severus to make him the early visionary who inspired the organization of the anti-Chalcedonian movement. By working through his debates with Julian, Moss offers an updated interpretation of Severus’s aims: while separatist thought marked his early career, Severus as bishop of Antioch (512–18 ce) did not seek a division from the ...
