Seeing the God

Ways of Envisioning the Divine in Ancient Mediterranean Religion
Edited by Jeffrey B. Pettis
ISBN: 978-1-61143-251-0
"When people prayed, they expected their gods to come," wrote Robin Lane Fox, providing the impetus for this volume of collected essays exploring the concept of how the ancients “envisioned” the deities within various ancient religious traditions. The perspectives of Judaism, Gnosticism, Syriac Christianity, Byzantium, and Classical Greco-Roman religion and philosophy are considered. Specific emphasis is given to phenomena such as dreams, visions, and initiatory rites mediating the divine encounter.

The Rabbinic Appropriation of Early Jewish Wedding Ritual
Series: Judaism in Context 13

Early Christian Attitudes to War, Violence and Military Service

ISBN: 978-1-61143-486-6
The early Christians were not of one mind when it came to war, violence and military service. There was a bewildering variety of opinion as to how they understood their place in the world. It seems however that generally they did not stand apart from society. On the contrary, they were happy to integrate and conform and they often accepted war and service in the army as activities which did not raise specific ethical problems.
