Description

This masterful study of the early centuries of Christianity vividly brings to life the religious, political, and cultural developments through which the faith that began as a sect within Judaism became finally the religion of the Roman empire. First published in 1970, Grant's classic is enhanced with a new foreward by Margaret M. Mitchell, which assesses its importance and puts the reader in touch with the advances of current research.

Ecclesiastical History (Vol. 56, No. 4, Oct. 2005) "[A]n excellent and above all else, sensible, vantage point from which to view the tangled complexities of this seminal period in Christian history." --James Carleton Paget, Peterhouse, Cambridge
