Emory Studies in Early Christianity
Volumes in Emory Studies in Early Christianity (ESEC) investigate early Christian literature within the context of Mediterranean literature, religion, society, and culture. ESEC authors use interdisciplinary methods informed by social, rhetorical, literary, and anthropological approaches to move beyond limits within traditional literary-historical investigations. Whether monograph, revised dissertation, or collection of essays, each ESEC volume works from the presupposition that Christianity began as a Jewish movement in various geographical, political, economic, and social locations in the Greco-Roman World.

Publication of ESEC volumes is made possible with the generous support of the Pierce Program in Religion of Oxford College of Emory University.

The ESEC editorial board is led by general editors Vernon K. Robbins (Emory University) and Roy R. Jeal (Booth University College) and associate editors Robert H. von Thaden Jr. (Mercyhurst University) and David B. Gowler (Oxford College of Emory University and Center for Ethics, Emory University). The editorial board includes the following members:
Meghan Henning, University of Dayton
Susan E. Hylen, Emory University
Donghyun Jeong, Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary
Mikeal C. Parsons, Baylor University
Russell B. Sisson, Union College
Shively T. J. Smith, Boston University School of Theology
