This volume brings together studies of Ephesos--a major city in the Greco-Roman period and a primary center for the spread of Christianity into the Western world--by an international array of scholars from the fields of classics, fine arts, history of religion, New Testament, ancient Christianity, and archaeology. The studies were presented at a spring 1994 Harvard Divinity School symposium on Ephesos, focusing on the results of one hundred years of archaeological work at Ephesos by members of the Austrian Archaeological Institute.The contributors to this volume discuss some of the most interesting and controversial results of recent investigations: the Processional Way of Artemis, the Hadrianic Olympieion and the Church of Mary, the so-called Temple of Domitian, and the heroa of Androkolos and Arsinoe.Since very little about the Austrian excavations at Ephesos has been published in English, this volume should prove useful in introducing the archaeology of this metropolis to a wider readership.CONTENTSIllustrations Abbreviations Short Titles Preface The City of Ephesos from the Roman Period to Late Antiquity Urban Development and Social Change in Imperial Ephesos At Home in the City of Artemis: Religion in Ephesos in the Literary Imagination of the Roman Period Ephesos in Early Christian Literature Via Sacra Ephesiaca: New Aspects of the Cult of Artemis Ephesia The Processional Way in Ephesos as a Place of Cult and Burial Preliminary Views of the Ephesian Harbor Subsidiary Factories of Italian Sigillata Potters: The Ephesian Evidence The Cult of the Roman Emperors in Ephesos: Temple Wardens, City Titles, and the Interpretation of the Revelation of John Sculptures of Gods and Heroes from Ephesos Egyptian Religions in Ephesos The Church of Mary and the Temple of Hadrian Olympios The Council of Ephesos: The Demise of the See of Ephesos and the Rise of the Cult of the Theotokos Glossary Index
