Church and Empire

Format: Digital
ISBN: 9781451496352


The history of the church’s relationship with governing authorities unfolds from its beginnings at the intersection of apprehension and acceptance, collaboration and separation. Over time, a sometimes paradoxical arrangement became the norm. This volume is dedicated to helping students chart this complex narrative through early Christian writings from the first six centuries of the Common Era. As a part of Ad Fontes: Early Christian Sources, this edited volume provides a helpful answer to questions about the role of government in relation to God’s kingdom.
