In this volume Julien M. Ogereau investigates the origins and development of Christianity in the Roman province of Macedonia in the first six centuries CE. Drawing from the oldest literary sources, Ogereau reconstructs the earliest history of the first Christian communities in the region and explores the legacy of the apostle Paul in the cities of Philippi, Thessalonica, and Beroea. Turning to the epigraphic and archaeological evidence, Ogereau then examines Christianity’s dissemination throughout the province and its impact on Macedonian society in late antiquity, especially on its epigraphic habits and material culture.
This is a subseries of Ancient Judaism and Early Christianity (AJEC). It stands in the tradition of the work of Adolf von Harnack, Die Mission und Ausbreitung des Christentums in den ersten drei Jahrhunderten (4th ed., Leipzig, 1924). Each volume of ECAM will focus on the rise and expansion of Christianity in a specific geographic region of Asia Minor up to the Council of Chalcedon in 451 CE. The monographs endeavor to take into account all relevant literary and non-literary evidence, paying special attention to epigraphical and archeological material, and to document the current state of research.

Der vorliegende 4. Band des Frankfurter Neuen Testaments bietet eine philologisch-kritische Neuübersetzung des Lukas-Evangeliums und der sogenannten Apostelgeschichte, die im Griechischen als "Taten der Abgesandten" betitelt ist. In der bewährten Zusammenarbeit eines Theologen und eines Altphilologen orientieren sich Stefan Alkier und Thomas Paulsen an der Semantik des Koine-Griechischen und ahmen weitgehend auch die griechische Satzstellung nach.So werden Leserinnen und Leser in die Lage versetzt, sich ein eigenes Bild vom theologischen und ästhetischen Gehalt dieser nur scheinbar vertrauten zentralen Werke der abendländischen Geistesgeschichte zu machen, das so wenig wie möglich durch vorgegebene Interpretationen vorgeprägt ist. Die Einleitung vergleicht Sprache und Stil der beiden Texte, stellt Gemeinsamkeiten und Differenzen fest, so dass fraglich wird, ob es sich nur um einen Verfasser handelte. Der Epilog befragt beide Texte bezüglich ihres Beitrags zu Prozessen kollektiver Identitätsbildung.
This book offers the first detailed commentary on the Gnostic treatises reported by Irenaeus in Adversus Haereses 1.29–30. It is argued that these texts represent the earliest tangible layer of the Gnostic literary tradition and served as sources for the Apocryphon of John and other later works. They also formed the starting point for Valentinus and his followers, who sought to reconcile the ideas of the Gnostics with apostolic Christianity. The book also shows that Irenaeus and later heresiologists referred to “the Gnostics” as a specific group among the great mass of heretics.
No one mentions Syriac, – a dialect of the Aramaic language Jesus spoke –, without referring to Sebastian P. Brock, the Oxford scholar and teacher who has written and taught about everything Syriac, even reorienting the field as The Third Lung of early Christianity (along with Greek and Latin). In 2018, Syriac scholars world-wide gathered in Sigtuna, Sweden, to celebrate with Sebastian his accomplishments and share new directions. Through essays showing what Syriac studies have attained, where they are going, as well as some arenas and connections previously not imagined, flavors of the fruits of laboring in the field are offered.

Series Editor:
The name of “Paul” continues to stand at the heart of New Testament studies — as one of the first and most important interpreters and promulgators of Jesus Christ. Wherever he went as missionary, teacher, and preacher, or wherever his letters went in his stead, he rarely failed to cause a reaction. Paul continues to stand at the centre of theology and controversy, as scholars and laity alike continue to respond to him.

This series of essay collections is edited by eminent New Testament scholar Stanley Porter. It offers an important contribution to New Testament scholarship in general, and particularly to Pauline scholarship, by focusing upon major areas of study in order to throw new light on various aspects of the man and his work. The scholars involved bring various interpretative methods to their task, depending upon their own approaches and the nature of the topic itself. The volumes progress logically through several issues of continuing importance in Pauline studies. As a result, the series is both broad in scope and focused in approach.

Pauline Studies constitutes a basic resource for all those interested in Paul, including New Testament scholars, students of early Christianity, and ancient historians.

The series has published two volumes over the last 5 years.
Roman Judaea, Christian origins, and Roman-Judaean-Christian relations are flourishing fields of endless fascination. Amid the flurry of new research, however, which uses ever new methods in the humanities and social sciences, basic questions about what happened and how people then understood events are easily obscured. This book argues that a simple but consistent historical method can throw new light – and challenge entrenched views – on such familiar topics as Roman provincial governance, the Jewish War, Flavian politics, Judaea after King Herod, Jewish and Christian historiography, Pharisees and Essenes, John the Baptist, the apostle Paul, and Luke-Acts.
