About the Author

Judith Perkins is professor of Classics and Humanities at Saint Joseph College, Connecticut. Her research focuses on the social and cultural dynamics of early Christian representation in its historical matrix. She is the author of The Suffering Self (Routledge 1995).


[T]his is an inspiring monograph that never fails to make its points clear ... Perkins' book is essential reading for scholars interested in Greek novels and early Christianity. - Alberto Quiroga, Ancient Narrative This is a valuable and stimulating contribution to the understanding of the complex interplay between early Christianity and the Roman imperial society and judicial system. It also casts much light onto the backdrop of crucial theological and anthropological Christian conceptions such as the incarnation of Christ and the resurrection of all human beings. - Ilaria L.E. Ramelli, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Review of Biblical Literature, April 2009
