"Christian Theology and Its Institutions in the Early Roman Empire is one of the most important books on early Christianity published in the last twenty years. Christoph Markschies lays the groundwork for an innovative history of pre-Nicene theology that takes into account both unity and diversity. Thanks to this excellent translation, even more scholars and students will learn from this exciting study."―David Brakke, Joe R. Engle Chair in the History of Christianity and Professor of History, The Ohio State University
"The translation of Christoph Markschies' Kaiserzeitliche christliche Theologie und ihre Institutionen into English is to be warmly welcomed, both to introduce anglophone readers to a tradition of scholarship, and to provoke a wider discussion of how we may after all speak of early Christian theology."―Judith Lieu, Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity, University of Cambridge
"Rejecting a 'history-of-ideas' approach to the development of Christian theology in the second and third centuries, Markschies explores how the institutional contexts in which theologizing took place shaped the 'plural identity' of ancient Christianity. A significant attempt to move beyond the framework of 'orthodoxy and heresy' in early Christian studies."―Elizabeth A. Clark, John Carlisle Kilgo Professor, Emerita, Duke University
