Overview
Description Christianity in Late Antiquity, 300-450 C.E: A Reader collects primary sources of the early Christian world, from the last "Great Persecution" under Emperor Diocletian to the Council of Chalcedon in the mid-fifth century. During this period Christianity rose to prominence in the Roman Empire, developed new notions of sanctity and heresy, and spread beyond the Mediterranean world. This reader incorporates standard texts--from authors such as Athanasius, Augustine, and Eusebius--in the most recent translations and also includes less familiar texts, some of which appear in English translation for the first time. Presented in their entirety or in long excerpts, the texts are arranged thematically and cover such topics as orthodoxy, conversion, asceticism, and art and architecture. The editors provide introductions for each chapter, text, and image, situating the selections historically, geographically, and intellectually. Christianity in Late Antiquity, 300-450 C.E.: A Reader highlights the ways in which religion and culture were mutually transformed during this crucial historical period. Ideal for courses in Early Christianity, Christianity in Late Antiquity, and History of Christianity, this reader is an excellent companion to Bart D. Ehrman's After the New Testament (OUP, 1998) and an exceptional

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Revealing  Jul 17, 2005
This book is basically piles of documents from when Christianity was still competing with the polytheistic religions of the late Roman Empire. The authors preface each document with a bit of history and explanation. The documents themselves are highly illuminating regarding the thinking of the early Christians, the creation and purpose of monasticism, the creation of a governing structure for Christians, and debates between competing views of the nature of Christ, Mary the mother of Jesus, etc.

I found the documents amazing and sometimes very dense. They are amazing in that we as modern people tend to think of ourselves as more complicated than people before. One reading of anything by John Chrysostom or Athanasius put me in my place. Oddly, I was left with the feeling that the authors really just compiled a bunch of documents that anyone could gather with intensive internet searches and that the actually authorship was minimal. This doesn't negate the fact that this is an excellent book to read to understand history or faith better.
 
More of a comment than a review:  Jul 7, 2005
I haven't read the book, and the table of contents look very interesting, but the date in common era for a book about Christianity bothers me. Why would the publisher or author use an innovative secular dating system for a book on Christian antiquity? It seems like a contradiction, and it is sure to repel Christians, the main gruop of people who will read this book.
