The New Testament and Other Books: Mapping Christian Literature in Late Antiquity

David Brakke, Ohio State University

As leading Christians sought to define the New Testament in the fourth and later centuries, they fashioned Christians as people, not of a book, the Bible, but of multiple books. The purportedly closed list of New Testament books generated new categories of Christian literature, such as “apocrypha” and “ecclesiastical writers,” which still shape how we understand the literary legacy of pre-modern Christians.

There is both an accessible elevator and gender-neutral restroom on the first and second floor of the building. If you have a disability that requires an accommodation, contact the Department of Middle East Studies at or 734-763-4465.
