Format: Paperback
The Religious Context Of Early Christianity: A Guide To Graeco-Roman Religions by Jans-Josef Klauck (Professor of New Testament and Early Christian Literature at the Divinity School of the University of Chicago) is a college-level reference to the religious practices that were common and widespread at the inception of Christianity. Ranging from examinations of antiquarian sacrificial cults; to the popular belief systems of the day in astrology and soothsaying; to the imperial cults surrounding powerful individuals, and so much more, The Religious Context Of Early Christianity is a scholarly, impressively researched, and meticulously presented reference work which is a very welcome addition to Christian Studies reading lists and historical reference collections.
