Editorial Reviews

Review of Biblical Literature - Steve Walton

This is a book that will open doors into further work and stimulate reflection and engagement with the social settings of earliest Christianity.

Religious Studies Review - Michael W. Holmes

...the volume is far more than merely informative, and it offers a rich and reliable basis for comparative work across disciplines.

From the Publisher

"This is a valuable sourcebook that makes available in English a representative and comprehensive collection of texts on the associations in the Greco-Roman world."
--Everett Ferguson, Distinguished Scholar in Residence, Abilene Christian University

"Indispensable. A splendid resource for students at several levels, not merely in religious studies, but for anyone exploring the society and culture of the Hellenistic and Roman worlds."
--Wayne A. Meeks, Woolsey Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies, Yale University

"This book provides an illuminating collection of a wide range of sources, bringing together, perhaps for the first time, epigraphic evidence about associations in the Greco-Roman world. I look forward to using it."
--Ilias Arnaoutoglou, Senior Researcher, Research Centre for the History of Greek Law, Academy of Athens
