This volume challenges some common assumptions about the culture of
the early Byzantine Near East by examining the architecture and
urban design of five cities in that period. The author assesses the
various kinds of religious structure found in each city, including
cult centres, temples dedicated to the Olympian gods and buildings
set aside for mystery religions. He also shows how the effects of
these sanctuaries on civic religious life were hugely important and
influential, and shaped the way that citizens conceived of their
city and of themselves. This book should be of interest to:
scholars and students of the New Testament and of the Hellenistic
period; scholars and students of Judaic studies; scholars and
students of Classical studies; and non-specialists interested in
the life and times of the ancient world.
