"Is there a publisher of theological works that better executes the historical survey of literature than Cambridge University Press? I doubt it. One approaches this present volume with high expectations. Happily, one is not disappointed." - Theology Today C. Clifton Black, Princeton Theological Seminary
Christian literature in the period c. 100 c. 400 constitutes one of the most influential textual oeuvres of any religion. Written mainly in Greek, Latin and Syriac, it emanated from all parts of the early Christian world and helped extend its boundaries. This History offers a systematic account of that literature and its setting. The work of individual writers are considered alongside three general essays which survey the social, cultural and doctrinal context within which Christian literature arose. This is a landmark reference book for scholars and students alike.
