This volume is the product of an interdisciplinary conference held at the University of Texas at Austin. Specialists in the study of inscriptions, architecture, sculpture, coins, tombs, pottery, and texts collaborate to produce new portraits of religion and society in the ancient city of Corinth. The studies focus on groups like the early Roman colonists, the Augustales (priests of Augustus), or the Pauline house churches; on specific cults such as those of Asklepios, Demeter, or the Sacred Spring; on media (e.g., coins, or burial inscriptions); or on the monuments and populations of nearby Kenchreai or Isthmia. The result is a deeper understanding of the religious life of Corinth, contextualized within the socially stratified cultures of the Hellenistic and Roman periods.

Review:

...this is a very valuable collection...
Peter Oakes, Journal for the Study of the New Testament 33 (5)

...this volume collects a rich assortment of thoughtful, stimulating and often innovative contributions to the contextual study of religion and society in ancient Corinth. All Corinthian scholars will find material of interest here.
Amelia R. Brown, University of Queensland, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2014.08.49

'This volume is highly valuable precisely because it brings archaeology and the study of ancient societies and religions (including Christianity) together, such that the extensive and up-to-date archaeological work can inform (and correct)--and hopefully be informed by--the work undertaken in other fields. It is also notable that a number of chapters make sophisticated use of theoretical resources regarding hybridity, identity, cultural complexity, and so on. [...] Overall, this is a diverse, wide-ranging volume offering a number of important and stimulating studies that scholars will need to consult and take into account. It is richly illustrated and generally well presented.
David G. Horrell, University of Exeter, Journal of Theological Studies', October 2013
