Each year many new Greek inscriptions and papyri are published. Others are supplemented or revised. For teachers and students of early Christianity and ancient Judaism such documents may be difficult of access and interpretation. But they offer fresh insight into the cultural setting of the literary sources. In every case the ancient text is reproduced here. A parallel English translation is provided by each contributor, along with full discussion. From 1981 a first set of five volumes of "New Docs" was edited by G.H.R. Horsley, with special attention to word usage. Volume 10 completes a second set of five edited by S.R. Llewelyn, focussing on major social institutions of the time. A comprehensive series of indexes for vols 6-10 as a set opens up a cumulative perspective on many topics. Notable entries in Volume 10 include: Artemis triumphs over a sorcererHow to celebrate Hadrian's accessionThe customs law of AsiaRepairing the baths at ColossaeThe Babatha archive and Roman lawThe Temple warning against Gentilesshow more

Review quote

" Near East Archaeological Society Bulletin" The 18 different scholars who contributed to this volume have provided a useful service to other scholars seeking to plumb the historical context of early Christianity . . . highly recommended. " Religious Studies Review" The appearance of an additional volume of the NewDocs series is always a welcome sight, and this one especially so for its inclusion of a comprehensive cumulative indices for Vols. 6-10. . . . Should be added to every research library's collection, yet is affordable enough for purchase by researchers and students. " Review of Biblical Literature" A splendid tool and a must have for all those (theologians) with some interest in the world of late antiquity, early Christian groups, and Jewish communities from the time of late years BCE and early years CE.
