Product description

Associations in the Greco-Roman World provides students and scholars with a clear and readable resource for greater understanding of the social, cultural, and religious life across the ancient Mediterranean. The authors provide new translations of inscriptions and papyri from hundreds of associations, alongside descriptions of more than two dozen archaeological remains of building sites. Complemented by a substantial annotated bibliography and accompanying images, this sourcebook fills many gaps and allows for future exploration in studies of the Greco-Roman religious world, particularly the nature of Judean and Christian groups at that time.

Review quote

"This is a valuable sourcebook that makes available in English a representative and comprehensive collection of texts on the associations in the Greco-Roman world." --Everett Ferguson, Distinguished Scholar in Residence, Abilene Christian University "Indispensable. A splendid resource for students at several levels, not merely in religious studies, but for anyone exploring the society and culture of the Hellenistic and Roman worlds." --Wayne A. Meeks, Woolsey Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies, Yale University "This book provides an illuminating collection of a wide range of sources, bringing together, perhaps for the first time, epigraphic evidence about associations in the Greco-Roman world. I look forward to using it." --Ilias Arnaoutoglou, Senior Researcher, Research Centre for the History of Greek Law, Academy of Athens "This collection is quite extensive and contains considerably more than most New Testament scholars are aware of. A very welcome resource from a powerhouse of research." --Abraham Malherbe, Buckingham Professor Emeritus of New Testament Criticism and Interpretation, Yale Divinity School
