Product Description


Jones has written a wonderful, clear, and lively book about a topic that has challenged scholars and non-scholars alike seemingly forever. Easy to read, full of minute insights and an excellent overarching theme the complexities which lie between pagans and Christians that show us how complicated the entire venture was. --Susanna Elm, University of California, Berkeley"

In Between Pagan and Christian, eminent classicist Christopher Jones set out to burst some idealist bubbles. He peeks behind the curtain of the mythology of the last pagans and asks [...] to what extent our understanding of pagans and paganism is a construction that is ultimately the product of Christian rhetoric. [...] What follows is a carefully plotted tour through late antique discourse about paganism [...] This is important subject matter and a worthwhile read, and Jones is peerless in his discussions of the 4th century and beyond. --Times Higher Education

HASH(0x8ee428ac) out of 5 stars A wonderful exploration of late Roman paganism and early Christianity 7 Mar. 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A wonderful exploration of late Roman paganism and early Christianity! A fair and relatively unbiased work despite topics which frequently incite some rather emotional responses. Worth the read.
