Series Information
Potsdamer Altertumswissenschaftliche Beiträge, 21

Description: Classical scholars tend to work with a narrow focus, specialising on particular subject areas. Frederick Brenk is an exception: he is still a specialist, but, as this third volume of his collected essays makes clear, a multiple specialist, as skilled in dealing with visual materials as with texts, with epigraphy as with prosopography, with Christian writers as with pagan, with Egypt as with Greece, with style and language as with philosophy and religion. Few scholars have such wide learning, and fewer still can use it to weave together insights from so many different ways of thinking, feeling, seeing, and writing.

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