A political history of early Christianity by Allen Brent( )

17 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In A Political History of Early Christianity Allen Brent examines early Christianity and its triumph in Roman Empire. Starting with the description of the apocalyptic movement of the earliest form of Roman [Markan] Christianity, Brent argues that for Christianity to triumph, it was necessary to replace a radical project of 'root and branch' transformation of present society with one that could appeal to a wider constituency influenced by Graeco Roman views of divine political order."--Jacket
Ignatius of Antioch : a martyr bishop and the origin of episcopacy by Allen Brent( )

26 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ignatius of Antioch (died c.115) is one of the Apostolic Fathers of the Christian Church. In his letters to other churches he re-interpreted church order, the Eucharist and martyrdom by using the cultural material of a pagan society. Allen Brent shows how Ignatius shaped the idea and theology of the office of a bishop in the Christian church. He provides an account of the circumstances and the cultural context in which Ignatius constructed what became the historic church older of Christendom."--BOOK JACKET

The imperial cult and the development of church order : concepts and images of authority in paganism and early Christianity before the Age of Cyprian by Allen Brent( Book )

17 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent studies have re-assessed Emperor worship as a genuinely religious response to the metaphysics of social order. Brent argues that Augustus' revolution represented a genuinely religious reformation of Republican religion that had failed in its metaphysical objectives. Against this backcloth, Luke, John the Seer, Clement, Ignatius and the Apologists refashioned Christian theology as an alternative answer to that metaphysical failure. Callistus and Pseudo-Hippolytus gave different responses to Severan images of imperial power. The early, Monarchian theology of the Trinity was thus to become a reflection of imperial culture and its justification that was later to be articulated both in Neo-Platonism, and in Cyprian's view of episcopal Order."--Jacket

Hippolytus and the Roman church in the third century : communities in tension before the emergence of a monarch-bishop by Allen Brent( Book )

13 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Allen Brent examines the significance of the Hippolytan events in the life of the Roman Church in the early third century. Developing the thesis of at least two authors in the Hippolytan corpus, he proposes a new, redactional explanation of the relation between these different authors and the theological and social tensions to which their work bears witness. Brent reconstructs a picture of the community that contextualizes both the Hippolytan literature and in particular the Statue, for which he proposes a new interpretation as a community artefact though universally misjudged as a monument to an individual. Tertullian's relationship with Callistus is finally re-assessed. This work is thus an important contribution to new understandings of a period critical both for the development of Church Order and embryonic Trinitarian Orthodoxy
Cyprian and Roman Carthage by Allen Brent( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thascius Caecilius Cyprianus believed fervently that his conversion experience had been a passage from the darkness of the world of Graeco-Roman paganism to his new vision of Christianity. But Cyprian's response as bishop to the Decian persecution was to be informed by the pagan culture that he had rejected so completely. His view of church order also owed much to Roman jurisprudential principles of legitimate authority exercised within a sacred boundary spatially and geographically defined. Given the highly fragmented state of the non-Christian sources for this period, Cyprian is often the only really contemporary primary source for the events through which he lived. In this book, Allen Brent contributes to our understanding both of Roman history in the mid-third century and of the enduring model of church order that developed in that period"--Provided by publisher
On the church: Select treatises by Cyprien( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"St Cyprian, third-century bishop of Carthage, developed a theory of church unity almost universally accepted up to the European Reformation: to be a member of the body of Christ you needed to be in communion with a priest who was in communion with a bishop who in turn was in communion with all other bishops of the world. But, how could you discern who was a legitimate bishop? And, on what kind of issue would it be right to break off communion? Additionally, could self-authenticating ministries, like those of martyrs and confessors who had suffered for the faith, supersede this order? Finally, did the Church need, and in what form, a universal bishop who could guarantee the integrity of the network of bishops?" "St Cyprian wrestled with these questions in his letters and treatises, translated in this volume and in its companion volume: On the Church: Select Letters. They are questions that continue to arise in various forms in the contemporary Church, and thus, these companion volumes are of ultimate value to the state of current Christendom."--
