Oxford Handbook of Early Christian Studies, Edited by Susan Ashbrook Harvey & David G Hunter
The Oxford Handbook of Early Christian Studies responds to and celebrates the explosion of research in this inter-disciplinary field over recent decades. As a one-volume reference work, it provides an introduction to the academic study of early Christianity (c. 100-600 AD) and examines the vast geographical area impacted by the early church, in western and eastern late antiquity. Authoritative, up-to-date surveys of current thinking and research in the various sub-specialties of early Christian studies. Essays by leading international scholars in the field. Each essay followed by suggestions for further reading and important bibliography on the topic. Final section on 'Tools of the Trade', providing an extensive guide to various scholarly tools critical to any study of the field: major journals, published series of critical editions and translations, dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, data bases, websites, and related research tools.
