Chapter Summary

This epilogue provides some concluding remarks of the book Explaining Christian Origins and Early Judaism: Contributions from Cognitive and Social Science. This book is a bold attempt to switch the study of Christian origins and early Judaism into a new gear by explicitly connecting it with various sides of the new cognitive science of religion. For that purpose, it draws on certain specific approaches within the overall field of the current study of early Judaism and early Christianity. While social-scientific and socio-rhetorical types of study have been applied to early Judaism and early Christianity for quite some time, the general cognitive science of religion has not. Thus, the book explicitly aims to further dialogue between, on the one hand, scholars of early Judaism and early Christianity with those specific, social-scientific and socio-rhetorical interests and, on the other, students of the cognitive science of religion in general.

Keywords: Christian origins; cognitive science; early Judaism; social science
