This volume collects selected papers from the seventh annual conference of the Asia-Pacific Early Christian Studies Society (APECSS), held in Seoul, Korea on 5–7th July 2012, on the theme "Preaching and Ministry in Early Christianity". The volume also contains a number of studies dedicated to the Churches of the Byzantine Commonwealth, both within Byzantine Empire and outside of it (Syriac-speaking and Coptic Churches).

Among the authors whose views are dealt with are Augustine, Jerome, Origen, Gregory of Nyssa, John Philoponus and, moreover, late Byzantine authors Niketas Stethatos and Nicephoros Blemmydes as well as a very little-known in the West 18th-century great Ukrainian religious Platonic thinker, Gregory Skovoroda. A number of hagiographic legends are also studied. The volume contains a large introduction into the manuscript tradition of the still unpublished Syriac hymnographic book Warda, which is in liturgical usage in the Assyrian Church of the East. An edition of Coptic and Copto-Arabic liturgical texts dedicated to Michael the New Martyr is also provided.
