Cavan W. Concannon makes a significant contribution to Pauline studies by imagining the responses of the Corinthians to Paul's letters. Based on surviving written materials and archaeological research, this book offers a textured portrait of the ancient Corinthians with whom Paul conversed, argued, debated, and partnered, focusing on issues of ethnicity, civic identity, politics, and empire. In doing so, the author provides readers a unique opportunity to assess anew, and imagine possibilities beyond, Paul's complicated legacy in shaping Western notions of race, ethnicity, and religion.
Cavan W. Concannon is currently visiting assistant professor in the Department of Religious Studies at Duke University. He is a former ACLS New Faculty Fellow at Duke and Post Doctoral Fellow in Early Christianity at Macquarie University.
