Pub. Date:
White (classics, U. of Arizona) describes the emergence of Christianity in antiquity, for secondary school and lower-level undergraduate readers. She presents the evolution from her perspective as a classicist with a literary and Roman bias, rather than a religious one. Essays give a historical overview of the Jewish background of Christianity; Jewish-Christian encounters under the Herods, including a short history of the life and ministry of Jesus; Diocletian's reforms, his persecution of Christians, and the Christian monotheism adopted by Constantine; and the church after Constantine's conversion when Christian emperors and popes and pagan Roman Senators debated the place of traditional religious practices in Rome. An annotated bibliography is included. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
