Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Eastman (New Testament Greek and Christian history, Yale Divinity School) identifies four broad practices--places, stories, objects and rituals, and patronage relationships--through which Christians created and re-created an image of Paul as a martyr worthy of veneration. These often overlapped and interacted with each other, he says, in the Pauline cult as well as cults of other saints. He looks at the cult on the Ostian Road and the Appian Road in the city of Rome, the spread of the cult in Latin Europe, and the cult in North Africa. The Society of Biblical Literature publishes the paperbound edition; Brill publishes the hardbound. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
