Description:New. An eminent church historian and patristic scholar, Wilken...New. An eminent church historian and patristic scholar, Wilken came to the realization many years ago that forming an historical picture of the early Christians by looking only at Christian documents must lead to distortion, which could only be remedied by taking seriously the testimony of contemporary pagan views of the Church. In this now-classic work of historical investigation, Wilken presents us with pagan opinion as represented by Pliny the Younger, Celsus, Galen, Porphyry, and Julian the Apostate. Only with the resulting sense of the opposition and prejudice the early Church faced can we begin to grasp the real significance of the early apologists' defense of the faith, and understand why early Christian doctrine developed as it did. 214 pp. Exterior appearance as new, scattered instances of highlighting in text.

It is a very interesting point of view. I have read much on those subjects, but always felt I needed something more pagan and less Christian. The reason? : to understand the situation in those old days. This book does not have waste. Galenus, Celsus and Plinio: a delicious reading.
Para los que leemos en castellano, va a ser muy dificil encontrar literatura tan detallada y especifica en nuestra lengua. Lastima que no traduzcan ese libro al castellano, es excelente.
