"Beginning with the death of Augustus, the first Roman emperor, in 14 A.D. and ending with the death of the first Christian emperor, Constantine, in 337 A.D., this study of early Christianity brings to life the religious, political, and cultural developments through which the faith of a Jewish sect became the religion of the Roman empire. First published in 1970, Grant's classic is enhanced with a new foreword by Margaret M.
