Chapter Summary

This index presents a list Greek words that occur in the book Light from the Gentiles: Hellenistic Philosophy and Early Christianity. The book as a whole mainly reflects author's interest in the interface between early Christianity and ancient philosophy, and in recent decades, particularly that between Paul and his heirs and their cultural environment. It is more realistic, and satisfying, to think in terms of the ecology of ancient Christianity and its world. Rather than viewing the Graeco-Roman world as the "background" against which early Christian texts should be read, Abraham J. Malherbe saw the ancient Mediterranean world as a rich ecology of diverse intellectual traditions that interacted within specific social contexts.

Keywords: ancient Christianity; Hellenistic philosophy; Paul
