Dr. Matthew Thiessen publishes new co-edited volume on the parting of the ways between Judaism and Christianity.

New Faculty publication on parting of the ways between Judaism and Christianity

Congratulations to Dr. Matthew Thiessen on the publication of his edited volume (with Dr. Lori Baron of Saint Louis University and Dr. Jill Hicks-Keeton of the University of Oklahoma) entitled The Ways that Often Parted, a volume of essays in honor of his doctoral supervisor, Dr. Joel Marcus.

Dec 03, 2018

This volume of essays, from an internationally renowned group of scholars, challenges popular ways of understanding how Judaism and Christianity came to be separate religions in antiquity. Essays in the volume reject the belief that there was one parting at an early point in time and contest the argument that there was no parting until a very late date. The resulting volume presents a complex account of the numerous ways partings occurred across the ancient Mediterranean spanning the first four centuries CE.
