Laura Salah Nasrallah
We shall read New Testament and early Christian literature to explore topics such as Paul and empire, early Christian apologetics, and martyrdom. These will in turn be explored in relation to the literature and especially the art and archaeology of the Roman Empire. Special focus will be given to materials of the first and second centuries CE. Key themes will include gender, colonialism, violence, spectacle, the body, justice, and ancient definitions of religion and piety.
