Another “New Documents” Volume

Standard

(Larry Hurtado):  The latest in the series, “New Documents Illustrating Early Christianity,” produced by the Ancient History Documentary Research Centre in Macquarie University (Sydney, Australia) has appeared, Volume 10, edited by S. R. Llewelyn and J. R. Harrison (published by Eerdmans).  Each volume in the series is a valuable collection of notices of publications on inscriptions, papyri and other artefacts that cast any light on early Christianity and/or its historical setting.  As well, there are typically valuable review-essays that gather up information, providing considered syntheses of matters.  Volume 10 includes sections on “Philosophy”, “Magic”, “Cult and Oracle”, “Public Life:  Caesarian Accession”, “Public Life:  Benefaction and Business”, “Household”, “Judaica”, and “Christianity”, some 29 entries in all.  Recommended!
