This volume brings together international scholars of religion, archaeologists, and scholars of art and architectural history to investigate social, political, and religious life in Roman and early Christian Thessalonike, an important metropolis in the Hellenistic, Roman, and early Christian periods and beyond. This volume is the first broadly interdisciplinary investigation of Roman and early Christian Thessalonike in English and offers new data and new interpretations by scholars of ancient religion and archaeology. The book covers materials usually treated by a broad range of disciplines: New Testament and early Christian literature, art historical materials, urban planning in antiquity, material culture and daily life, and archaeological artifacts from the Roman to the late antique period.

Review quote

"From Roman to Early Christian Thessalonike: Studies in Religion and Archaeology" is a rich resource not only for the light it sheds on Thessalonike but also for the interpretive case studies it offers for an impressive range of ancient materials--architecture, inscriptions, texts (canonical and non-canonical), sarcophagi, ceramics, glassware and mosaics.--James C. Walters, Associate Professor Of New Testament And Christian Origins Boston University School Of Theology
