This book provides a new appraisal of religious change in the Roman Empire, focusing on the rise of Christianity in Northern Italy. Drawing on both archaeological evidence and traditional literary sources, Mark Humphries examines Christian origins and shows how competing interests of bishops, emperors, and laity impacted the political, cultural, and theological development of the church.
