Religious Conflict from Early Christianity to Early Islam, Arbeiten zur Kirchengeschichte 121.
by Wendy Mayer and Bronwen Neil (Editors)
Berlin: De Gruyter, 2013
The essays in this volume engage a variety of inter- and intra-religious conflicts, ranging from the first to eighth centuries CE. The religious conflicts associated with the birth and development of Christianity, from the death of Jesus, to the Apostle Paul, through to the Patristic Era up to and including the beginnings of Islam, are well represented. Given the political and religious tensions in the world today, this volume is well positioned to find relevance and meaning in societies still grappling with the monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
