In Early Christianity in the Lycus Valley, Ulrich Huttner explores the way Christians established communities and defined their position within their surroundings from the first to the fifth centuries. He shows that since the time of Paul the apostle, the cities Colossae, Hierapolis and Laodicea afforded Christians a space to make their own history.Huttner uses a wide variety of sources, not only Christian texts - from Pauline letters to byzantine hagiographies - but also inscriptions and archeological remains, to reconstruct the religious conflicts as well as cooperation between Christians, Jews and Pagans. The book reveals the importance of local conditions in the development of Early Christianity.Table of Contents1. Introduction2. Historical Background3. Pauline Influence: Philemon and Colossians4.
