Late Ancient Christianity
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
During the Roman Imperial period Christians produced their most enduring codifications of doctrine, liturgy and institutional structure through the work of the Church Fathers and the theological controversies reflected in the Councils. But this 'people's history' of the early Church focuses on the everyday practices and observances of ordinary Christians during this period. Its eleven chapters discuss topics ranging from children's play and ascetics' manual labour to baptismal rites and private chapels.
