As allegiance to Jesus Christ spread across the Roman Empire in the second century, writings, practices, ideas erupted in a creative maelstrom. Many of the patterns of practice and belief that later become normative emerged, in the midst of debate and argument with neighbours who shared or who rejected that allegiance. Authoritative texts, principles of argument, attitudes to received authority, the demands of allegiance in the face of opposition, identifying who belonged and who did not, all demanded attention. These essays explore those divergent voices, and the no-less diverse and lively debates thay have inspired in recent scholarship.
This series fosters the exegesis of biblical texts through engagement with Eastern Orthodox interpretive traditions. This focus includes historical analysis, as well as critical reflection on Eastern patristics, ancient philosophy, Orthodox liturgical and artistic practice, and modern Orthodox theologians to stimulate theological interpretation.
This is the story of the great and final city of John’s Revelation. Plumbing the first three centuries of Christian literature, this careful narrative highlights the early significance of one of the most influential, evocative, and controversial images in Christian scripture. Chronicling how dozens of early writers, from Justin and Irenaeus to Origen and Methodius, and from the "Montanists" to Tertullian, Victorinus, and Lactantius, imagined and applied the coming New Jerusalem, the study demonstrates how the city, regardless of its myriad and often competing interpretations, always pointed to the highest possible union of God and humanity both here and now and in the age to come.
Exegese von Phil 3 vor dem Hintergrund der stoischen Philosophie und der patristischen Rezeption
This volume explores the writings of Paul, Seneca, and Clement of Alexandria, providing a fresh outlook on conformity with Christ's death as illustrated in Phil 3:10. It examines Paul's concept of meditatio mortis and brings it into discussion with the Stoic tradition of Seneca in the 'West' and the theological insights of Clement of Alexandria in the 'East'. This endeavour enriches the scholarly discourse and enhances the understanding of the theological concepts within Philippians 3.

Die vorliegende Studie untersucht die Schriften von Paulus, Seneca und Clemens von Alexandrien und bietet einen neuen Blick auf die Gleichförmigkeit mit dem Tod Christi, wie sie in Phil 3,10 dargestellt wird. Im Fokus steht Paulus' Konzept der meditatio mortis, das mit der stoischen Tradition des Seneca im "Westen" und den theologischen Einsichten des Clemens von Alexandrien im "Osten" ins Gespräch gebracht wird. Dieses Bemühen fördert das Verständnis der theologischen Konzepte in Phil 3.
Re-envisioning Theodore is the first comprehensive study of Theodore of Mopsuestia's biblical interpretation in his Catechetical Homilies. It challenges the common yet reductionist view of Theodore’s exegetical approach as “historical,” offering a balanced portrayal of this exegete. Theodore is not a slave of his interpretative methodology, and he may omit the exposition of the historical setting of the Bible and introduce elements not present in the biblical narrative.Re-envisioning Theodore also reveals Theodore’s previously little known exegetical ties with Pro-Nicenes and, through them, with Origen. For the first time, this book shows that his exegesis incorporates Greco-Syrian liturgical imagery.
The Brill Encyclopedia of Early Christianity (BEEC) focuses on the history of early Christianity, covering texts, authors, ideas, and their reception. Its content is intended to bridge the gap between the fields of New Testament studies and patristics, connecting a number of related fields of study including Judaism, ancient history and philosophy, covering the whole period of early Christianity up to 600 CE.
The BEEC aims both to provide a critical review of the methods used in Early Christian Studies and also to update the history of scholarship.
The BEEC addresses a range of traditions, including iconographic, martyrological, ecclesiastical, and Christological traditions, as well as cultic phenomena, such as the veneration of saints. The history of the transmission of texts and the reception of early Christian writers are also addressed. The BEEC focuses on early Christianity from a historical perspective in order to uncover the lasting legacy of the authors and texts until the present day.

Volume 6 (She - Zos & Index) is also available as part of the 6-volume Brill Encyclopedia of Early Christianity set.
What does it mean for a group to speak of its identity and, in contrast, to speak about the “other”? As with all groups, early Christian communities underwent a process of identity formation, and in this process, intertextuality played a role. The choice of biblical texts and imageries, their reception and adaptation, affected how early Christian communities perceived themselves. Conversely, how they perceived themselves affected which texts they were drawn to and how they read and received them. The contributors to this volume examine how early Christian authors used Scripture and related texts and, in turn, how those texts shaped the identity of their communities.
