Editorial Reviews


“Evokes the sights and sounds of the ancient world with daring and imagination… An intellectual tour-de-force that challenges us to see the history of Christianity through the eyes of those who actually lived it.”—Los Angeles Times

“A fascinating experiment, to be read carefully, critically, and thoughtfully.”—Library Journal
“Substantial information about the pagan context within which Christianity emerged, and Roman attitudes toward the new faith's practitioners. Juxtaposing the campaign against the Manichaeanism associated with Zoroastrianism in Persia, and similar campaigns associated with Christianity in Rome, helps spur readers new to the subject, in particular, to critical reflection on the interrelations of politics and religion, especially those involved in the strange triumph of Hopkins' title—the establishment of Christianity.”—Booklist
