This work gives a detailed overview about the rise and expansion of Christianity in ancient Lycaonia and adjacent areas, from Paul the Apostle until the late 4th century bishop of Iconium, Amphilochius. It is essentially based on hundreds of funerary inscriptions from Lycaonia, but takes into account all available literary evidence. It maps the expansion of Christianity in the region and describe their practice of name-giving, household and family structures, occupations, and their use of verse inscriptions. It gives special attention to forms of charity, the reception of biblical tradition, the authority and leadership of the clergy, popular theology and forms of ascetic Christianity in Lycaonia.
