Over thirty essays provide a comprehensive overview of the essential events, persons, places and issues involved in the emergence of the Christian religion in the Mediterranean world over the first three centuries. The collection traces the dynamic history from the time of Jesus through to the rise of Imperial Christianity in the fourth century. It provides a thoughtful and well-documented analysis of the diverse forms of Christian community, identity and practice that arose soon after Jesus's death, and which through missionary efforts were soon implanted throughout the Roman Empire
Paul and the rhetoric of reconciliation : an exegetical investigation of the language and composition of 1 Corinthians by Margaret Mary Mitchell( Book )

20 editions published between 1989 and 1993 in English and German and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What, overall, is the genre, function, and composition of Paul's first letter to the Corinthians? Margaret Mitchell thoroughly documents her argument that 1 Corinthians was a single letter persuading the Corinthian Christian community to become unified. She analyzes the letter as deliberative rhetoric that pleaded for a course of action in the future and uses rhetorical criticism within a historical context to find enlightening parallels for many of the successive parts of the letters
Paul, the Corinthians, and the birth of Christian hermeneutics by Margaret Mary Mitchell( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a series of exchanges with the Corinthians in the mid-50s AD, Paul continually sought to define the meaning of his message, his body and his letters, at times insisting upon a literal understanding, at others urging the reader to move beyond the words to a deeper sense within. Proposing a fresh approach to early Christian exegesis, Margaret M. Mitchell shows how in the Corinthian letters Paul was fashioning the very principles that later authors would use to interpret all scripture. Originally delivered as The Speaker's Lectures in Biblical Studies at Oxford University, this volume recreates the dynamism of the Pauline letters in their immediate historical context and beyond it in their later use by patristic exegetes. An engagingly written, insightful demonstration of the hermeneutical impact of Paul's Corinthian correspondence on early Christian exegetes, it also illustrates a new way to think about the history of reception of biblical texts"--

The Cambridge history of Christianity( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This series offers a comprehensive chronological account of the development of Christianity in all its aspects theological, intellectual, social, political, regional, global from its beginnings to the present day. Each volume makes a substantial contribution in its own right to the scholarship of its period and the complete History constitutes a major work of academic reference. Far from being merely a history of Western European Christianity and its offshoots, the History aims to provide a global perspective. Eastern and Coptic Christianity are given full consideration from the early period onwards, and later, African, Far Eastern, New World, South Asian and other non-European developments in Christianity receive proper coverage. The volumes cover popular piety and non-formal expressions of Christian faith and treat the sociology of Christian formation, worship and devotion in a broad cultural context. The question of relations between Christianity and other major faiths is also kept in sight throughout. - Publisher
Paul and the emergence of Christian textuality : early Christian literary culture in context : collected essays by Margaret Mary Mitchell( Book )

14 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The apostle Paul was the inaugurator of early Christian literary culture, not only through the writing of his own letters (ca. 50-62 CE) - which were to become surprisingly influential once collected and published after his death - but also through the successful propagation of a religious logic of mediated epiphanies of Christ, on the one hand, and of "synecdochical hermeneutics" of the gospel narrative about Christ, on the other. He set the precedent that the Christ-believing movements were to be rooted in texts and textual interpretation. Already in his own letters, Paul began a process of ongoing articulation and reinterpretation of the gospel narrative and the various means by which it could be replicated in each new generation and locale. This process was to continue through the letters written in his name, the Acts of the Apostles, and apostolic imitators and expositors in the centuries to come. These 15 essays by Margaret M. Mitchell are accompanied by an introduction that lays out thirteen propositions for the development of early Christian literary culture from its inception in the astounding claims of Paul, the self-styled "apostolic envoy of Jesus Christ crucified," up through Constantine."--

Volume 1. The apostle Paul was the inaugurator of early Christian literary culture, not only through the writing of his own letters (ca. 50-62 CE) - which were to become surprisingly influential once collected and published after his death - but also through the successful propagation of a religious logic of mediated epiphanies of Christ, on the one hand, and of "synecdochical hermeneutics" of the gospel narrative about Christ, on the other.

Paul beyond the Judaism/Hellenism divide( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume does away with the traditional strategy of playing "Judaism" and "Hellenism" against each other as a context to understand Paul. This aim is reached in two ways: (1) in essays that display the ideological underpinnings of a "Jewish" and "Hellenistic" Paul in historical and modern scholarly interpretations of him, and (2) in essays that use case studies from the Corinthian correspondence that draw freely on "Jewish" and "Greco-Roman" contextual material to illuminate this Pauline phenomena. -- Publisher description
Augustus to Constantine : the rise and triumph of Christianity in the Roman world by Robert M Grant( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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. Mitchell, which assesses its importance and puts the reader in touch with the advances of current research."--Jacket
1 Timothy reconsidered by Colloquium Oecumenicum Paulinum( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1 Timothy Reconsidered contains the presentations and deliberations of the nineteenth meeting of the Colloquium Oecumenicum Paulinum, a distinguished group of some thirty-five international and ecumenical Pauline scholars, held at the Abbey of Saint Paul in Rome during September, 2006. 1 Timothy served as the focal point for all eight papers, although the relationship of this text to that of 2 Timothy, Titus and to other Pauline writings was repeatedly considered. Extensive dialogue centered on the methodological issue of pseudonymity and its continued effectiveness as an exegetical tool. Some urged consideration of a broader view of Pauline letter writing, one that involved authorization to, or joint authorship with, co-workers situated in diverse Pauline missionary centers. The volume also contains a major reassessment of theological themes found in 1 Timothy, including the relationship of grace to such heteronomous norms as asceticism, the so-called accomodationist character of the letter, especially the relationship of eusebeia to bourgeois Christianity, and whether the use of the category "household" is, in fact, a misrepresentation of Paul's understanding of the church. Under the presidency of Karl Donfried, presenters included David Horrell, Luke Timothy Johnson, Vasile Mihoc, Margaret Mitchell, Yann Redalié, László Simon and Thomas Sóding. - Publisher
