Chapter Summary

The relations between Christians and Jews in late antiquity is a subject which has been addressed by many. One source of information for these relations are council texts. The significance of council texts as compared to other sources (archaeology, patristics, and civil legislation) is that they address specific aspects of life within the developing Christian church. This study investigates examples of Christians involved in shared meals and the exchange of food gifts with Jews. The canons discussed come from fourth- to eighth-century council texts from the eastern and western Mediterranean. Relevant canons from different councils are presented, followed by a short discussion.
