Module Description

Who were the early Christians? What can they teach us about contemporary Christianity? How and where did they live, worship, eat, and relate to their bodies? What did their “pagan” neighbours in Rome, Athens, Egypt or ancient Syria think about them? How did they understand their beliefs and interact with the cultures around them? We will investigate these questions together using literary sources as well as material evidence (archaeological finds, artwork, inscriptions).

Daniele Pevarello teaches Early Christianity in the School of Religion, Theology, and Peace Studies at Trinity College Dublin. He studied Second Temple Judaism, New Testament and early Christianity in Rome, Bielefeld and Cambridge. His research focuses on the interaction between Early Christian thought and Graeco-Roman culture with special emphasis on the origins of Christian asceticism and the construction of Christian regional identities in the late Antique world.
