This volume looks at the imprint and influence that Paul’s writings had in the second century by examining the Pauline corpus in relationship to key second century figures, texts, and events. As such, this volume is an exercise in the Wirkungsgeschichte or “effective-history” of Paul. It investigates the impact of Paul’s legacy and examines how this legacy shaped the Christianity that emerged in the second century as represented by the Apostolic Fathers, the early Christian Apologists, and Gnostic groups. The contributors are experts in their respective areas. Each contributor in turn examines how a given document or group reflects the influence of Paul’s life, letters, and theology and the various and even competing ways in which Paul’s legacy may be seen to have been appropriated. As such, this is the first volume to present an extended juxtaposition of Paul’s thought with such a wide selection of writings from the second century.
