Laura Nasrallah argues that early Christian literature addressed to Greeks and Romans is best understood when read in tandem with the archaeological remains of Roman antiquity. She examines second-century Christianity by looking at the world in which Christians lived and moved and had their being. Early Christians were not divorced from the materiality of the world.

Nasrallah tells her story of Christians in the second century through a juxtaposition of. .

Nasrallah is concerned with landscapes-some real, most imaginary, all of them imperial-from the broad horizons of the oikoumene, to particular cityscapes, down to the location of individual bodies of flesh and marble. Nearly all of the book’s seven chapters juxtapose literary and archaeological materials.

Laura Nasrallah argues that early Christian literature addressed to Greeks and Romans is best understood when read in tandem with the archaeological remains of Roman antiquity. She examines second-century Christianity by looking at the world in which Christians "lived and moved and had their being." Early Christians were not divorced from the materiality of the world, nor did they always remain distant from the Greek culture of the time or the rhetoric of Roman power. Nasrallah shows how early Christians took up themes of justice, piety, and even the question of whether humans could be gods. They did so in the midst of sculptures that conveyed visually that humans could be gods, monumental architecture that made claims about the justice and piety of the Roman imperial family, and ideas of geography that placed Greek or Roman ethnicity at the center of the known world.
