Beschreibung

There has been growing interest in recent years in the presence and image of blacks and blackness in classical antiquity. This pioneering and much-needed work is the first to survey and theorize blacks as seen by early Christian writers. Byron creates a solid and original foundation of theoretical arguments as the basis for her discussion of the presence of blacks in Christian antiquity. Her presentation of the critical analysis and sources side by side encourages the reader to engage with the material in a more sophisticated way.



Zusammenfassung
How were early Christians influenced by contemporary assumptions about ethnic and colour differences?Why were early Christian writers so attracted to the subject of Blacks, Egyptians, and Ethiopians?Looking at the neglected issue of race brings valuable new perspectives to the study of the ancient world; now Gay Byron's exciting work is the first to survey and theorise Blacks, Egyptians and Ethiopians in Christian antiquity.By combining innovative theory and methodology with a detailed survey of early Christian writings, Byron shows how perceptions about ethnic and color differences influenced the discursive strategies of ancient Christian authors. She demonstrates convincingly that, in spite of the contention that Christianity was to extend to all peoples, certain groups of Christians were marginalized and rendered invisible and silent.Original and pioneering, this book will inspire discussion at every level, encouraging a broader and more sophisticated understanding of early Christianity for scholars and students alike.
