Overview

There has been growing contemporary interest in the presence and image of blacks and blackness in classical antiquity. However, this work surveys and theorizes the black as seen by early Christian writers. Byron creates a foundation of theoretical arguments as the basis for her discussion of the presence of blacks in Christian antiquity. Her presentation of the critical analysis and sources side-by-side encourages the reader to engage with the material in a more sophisticated way. This study should appeal to a wide range of disciplines, including biblical studies, classical studies, African-American studies, gender and cultural studies.
