Wealth and Poverty in Early Church and Society

Author: Susan R. Holman

[Image: 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.
