Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


This book belongs to a seven-volume series, the first of which, Life of Jesus, is the most famous (or infamous). The Apostles, the second volume, is a sequel of sorts to Life of Jesus, telling the story of the events immediately following Christ’s death. The historian follows the spread of Christianity from the Apostles to all across Europe and the Near East, documenting Pentecost and the establishment of the first churches. Renan’s historical account reflects his background in 19th century German higher criticism of the Bible.
