Wealth and Poverty in Early Church and Society

Wealth and poverty are issues of perennial importance in the life and thought of the church. This volume brings patristic thought to bear on these vital issues. The contributors offer explanations of poverty in the New Testament period, explore developments among Christians in Egypt and Asia Minor and in early Byzantium, and connect patristic theology with contemporary public policy and religious dialogue.

This volume inaugurates Holy Cross Studies in Patristic Theology and History, a partnership between Baker Academic and the Stephen and Catherine Pappas Patristic Institute of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, Massachusetts. The series is a deliberate outreach by the Orthodox community to Protestant and Catholic seminarians, pastors, and theologians. In these multiauthor books, contributors from all traditions focus on the patristic (especially Greek patristic) heritage.

Contributors: David Brakke, Rudolf Brandle, Denise Kimber Buell, Daniel Caner, Francine Cardman, Demetrios J. Constantelos, Steven J. Friesen, Gorge Hasselhoff, Susan R. Holman, Angeliki E. Laiou, Brian Matz, Wendy Mayer, Edward Moore, Timothy Patitsas, Adam Serfass, A. Edward Siecienski, Annewies van den Hoek, Efthalia Makris Walsh
