Church in Rome in the First Century

Author:Edmundson, George (1849-1930)
Description:In 1913, George Edmundson gave the University of Oxford's Bampton Lectures, an annual (now biennial) lecture series that concentrates on Christian theological topics. This book contains the collection of Edmundson's lectures, all of which concern Christianity's first two hundred years. The majority of the book's content addresses the New Testament directly, while a couple of the later lectures concern later early church figures such as Irenaeus, Clement of Alexandria, and Tertullian. During his time, Edmundson's work was largely ignored, as he was a clergyman rather than a New Testament scholar. Not only this, but his conclusions differed vastly from the scholarly consensus of his contemporaries. Today, readers can approach Edmundson's work as one piece of the ongoing dialogue in literary/historical criticism of the Bible.
