A. D. Lee examines the fortunes of pagans and Christians from the upheavals of the third century, to the increasingly tumultuous times of the fifth and sixth centuries which witnessed the demise of the western empire and the survival of the eastern half. It also explores the fate of other significant religious groups--Jews, Zoroastrians, and Manichaeans--and illustrates a number of important themes in late antique Christianity, such as the growth of monasticism, the emerging power of bishops, and the development of pilgrimage.

Each extract or item is accompanied by a clear explanation of its context and significance and by guidance on further reading. By presenting contemporary material in this way, Pagans and Christians in Late Antiquityforms the ideal introduction to a period and subject full of interest.


"... students and scholars of late antiquity, the early medieval period, the history of Christianity, or religious studies will enjoy this handy compedium..."--Religious Studies Review, October 2001, volume 27 number 4
