About the Author

Teresa Morgan is Professor of Graeco-Roman History in the Faculty of Classics, Oxford University, and Nancy Bissell Turpin Fellow and Tutor in Ancient History at Oriel College. She is a historian of Graeco-Roman and early Christian culture and mentalite; previous books include Literate Education in the Hellenistic and Roman Worlds (1998), and Popular Morality in the Early Roman Empire (2007). She is a self-supporting priest in the Parish of Littlemore, Oxford.


`[I]t is to be hoped that its conclusions cascade through the layers of modern Christianity to refresh more than just the thirst of professional scholars.' Cally Hammond, Church Times `What Teresa Morgan has done here is to offer a hard-won glimpse of the early Christian picture in its original colours' Kate Cooper The Times Literary Supplement `This is an excellent work. It is well written, thoroughly researched, cogently argued, and will no doubt be of great use, not only for scholars interested in pistis/fides, but also for those who desire a model of doing sociological research in antiquity.' Sean A. Adams, Journal for the Study of the New Testament
