Slavery in Early Christianity
Glancy, Jennifer A.

Minneapolis: Fortress, 2006 pp. xii + 203. $22.00


Description: This is the first paperback edition of the enlightening Oxford University hardcover published in 2002. Glancy here situates early Christian slavery in its broader cultural setting, arguing that modern scholars have consistently underestimated the pervasive impact of slavery on the institutional structures, ideologies, and practices of the early churches Ė and upon the bodies of the enslaved. Her careful attention to the bodily experience of subjection and violation that constituted slavery makes this an indispensable book for anyone interested in slavery in early Christianity. Includes special chapters on Jesus and Paul.

Subjects: Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Early Church Origins
