Overview

Davina C. Lopez here combines attention to Roman visual and literary representations of conquered nations with a gender-critical "re-imagination" of Paul's apostleship. The result is a new and more critical perspective on the systematic violence of the Roman Empire, and a renewed understanding of "Paul's politics of the new creation."

Resource Experts
  • Bibliographical references
  • Notes and indexes
Davina Lopez has dramatically reframed two enduring themes of Pauline scholarship in this book. Paul's 'gentiles' gain a crucial new theo-political meaning. Gender in Paul's thought obtains stunning new vistas as well, which reorder the entire debate. With striking visuals from the ancient world and incisive analysis of texts, Lopez joins Brigitte Kahl in recasting Pauline scholarship for the future.

—Hal Taussig, Visiting Professor of New Testament, Union Theological Seminary in New York
