Intertextuality in the second century

D. Jeffrey Bingham (Editor)
"This volume offers an appreciation of the value of intertextuality--from Greek, Roman, Jewish, and biblical traditions--as related to the post-apostolic level of Christian development within the second century. Not least of these foundational pillars is the certain impact of the Second Sophistic movemnet during this period with its insipient influence on much of early Christian theology's formation. The variety of these strands of inspiration created a tapestry of many diverse elements that came to shape the second-century Christian situation. Here one sees biblical texts at work, Jewish and Greek foundations at play, and interaction among patristic authors as they seek to reconcile their competing perspectives on what it meant to be 'Christian' within the contemporary context"-- Back cover
