Item description for Redescribing Christian Origins (Society of Biblical Literature Symposium Series, No. 28) (Symposium Series (Society of Biblical Literature)) by Ron Cameron & Merrill P. Miller...
In this collection of provocative and ambitious essays, participants in the SBLs Seminar on Ancient Myths and Modern Theories of Christian Origins challenge traditional paradigms and reimagine the beginnings of Christian religion. Rather than assume that the gospel story has its foundation in the historical Jesus, a human encounter with transcendence, or the dramatic religious experience of individuals, contributors make use of social anthropology and propose that the beginnings of Christianity can be understood as reflexive social experiments. The first of three proposed volumes that launch a new and genuinely critical discourse about the history of early Christianities. Contributors include William E. Arnal, Willi Braun, Ron Cameron, Barry S. Crawford, Arthur J. Dewey, Burton L. Mack, Luther H. Martin, Christopher R. Matthews, Merrill P. Miller, Dennis E. Smith, Jonathan Z. Smith, and Stanley K. Stowers.
