Early Christian Families in Context: An Interdisciplinary Dialogue

This is one of the volumes in Pre-Publication due to be deleted here.

Early family dynamics in the ancient world and Christianity is an area of research that is lacking in Logos, and this resource treats several different types of family structures.  Note the essays included:

    • Domus and Insulae in Rome: Families and Housefuls” by Andrew Wallace-Hadrill

    • “The Problems of Gendered Space in Syro-Palestinian Domestic Architecture: The Case of Roman-Period Galilee” by Eric M. Meyers
  • Domestic Values: Equality, Suffering
    • “The Language of Equality in Early Christian House Churches: A Constructivist Approach” by Peter Lampe
    • “Paul’s Portrait of Christ Crucified (Gal. 3:1) in Light of Paintings and Sculptures of Suffering and Death in Pompeiian and Roman Houses” by David L. Balch
  • Women
    • “Sex and the Married Woman in Ancient Rome” by Suzanne Dixon
    • “Typical and Atypical Family Dynamics: The Cases of Babatha and Berenice” by Ross S. Kraemer
    • “Was Celsus Right? The Role of Women in the Expansion of Early Christianity” by Margaret Y. MacDonald
    • “Women, Slaves, and the Economy of the Roman Household” by Richard Saller
  • Slaves
    • “Slave Families and Slaves in Families” by Dale B. Martin
    • “The Domestic Enemy: A Moral Polarity of Household Slaves in Early Christian Apologies and Martyrdoms” by J. Albert Harrill
    • “Female Slaves, Porneia, and the Limits of Obedience” by Carolyn Osiek
  • Children
    • “Death, Burial, and Commemoration of Children in Roman Ital” by Beryl Rawson
    • “Desperately Different? Delicia Children in the Roman Household” by Christian Lae
  • Implications for Theological Education
    • “Theological Education, the Bible, and History: Détente in the Culture Wars” by Amy-Jill Levine
    • “Theological Education and the Analogical Imagination” by Timothy F. Sedgwick
    • “Why Family Matters for Early Christian Literature” by Margaret M. Mitchell

Please consider placing a vote for this resource, as well as the others on that page, as there are several good volumes that we will lose.

Adding a blurb about pre-pubs about to be dropped to the homepage might draw a lot more attention to them as it could reach a much larger audience than the forums. I had never seen this resource until Thom's post, but as soon as I saw this it immediately intrigued me and I placed an order. I have to think I'm not the only one who would grab an interesting historical resource like this once they became aware of it. It would be all the better if it's content was accessible through the factbook!

Well, it sure looks close. Signed up.

What caught my eye was the slave articles. Granted a current subject, but my curiousity derives from Egyptian sin-lists in my recently shipped OT Parallels resource (quite interesting, even if not so parallel). Owners were not to offend their slaves' gods.

Sorting Pre-Pub's that are Gathering Interest by Progress shows:

#2 => The Nonviolent Atonement, 2nd ed.

#3 => Early Christian Families in Context: An Interdisciplinary Dialogue

I will place an order for Early Christian Families if someone will give a reciprocal order for The Nonviolent Atonement.

They are both in production!
