by Everett FergusonThe last decade of Christianity Studies has witnessed a revolution in Late Antiquity scholarship. The very popularity of Late Antiquity says something about the current intellectual climate in which these studies arise: a shift from a primary emphasis on Christianity itself to the larger cultural setting of which it was a part, a shift from doctrinal studies to the church as a social institution, and a shift from concern for orthodoxy to the popular religious attitudes and expressions. While the chronological scope is the same, the first six centuries of the common era, this collection of scholarly essays supplements Studies in Early Christianity: A Collection of Scholarly Essays, an 18-volume set of articles published by Garland in 1993. The present set of six volumes supplements the first series by selecting articles written during the last decade. The arrangement once more is topical but with a detailed analysis and coverage of topics.
