Emory Studies in Early Christianity
Volumes in Emory Studies in Early Christianity (ESEC) investigate early Christian literature within the context of Mediterranean literature, religion, society, and culture. ESEC authors use interdisciplinary methods informed by social, rhetorical, literary, and anthropological approaches to move beyond limits within traditional literary-historical investigations. Whether monograph, revised dissertation, or collection of essays, each ESEC volume works from the presupposition that Christianity began as a Jewish movement in various geographical, political, economic, and social locations in the Greco-Roman World.

Publication of ESEC volumes is made possible with the generous support of the Pierce Program in Religion of Oxford College of Emory University.

The ESEC editorial board is led by general editors Vernon K. Robbins (Emory University) and David B. Gowler (Oxford College of Emory University and Center for Ethics, Emory University) and associate editors Bart B. Bruehler (Indiana Wesleyan University) and Robert H. von Thaden Jr. (Mercyhurst University). The editorial board includes the following members:
Richard S. Ascough, Queen’s University
Juan Hernández Jr., Bethel University
Susan E. Hylen, Emory University
Brigitte Kahl, Union Theological Seminary
Mikeal C. Parsons, Baylor University
Christopher C. Rowland, The Queen’s College, University of Oxford
Russell B. Sisson, Union College
Elaine M. Wainwright, University of Auckland
