The Arrogance of Nations

Reading Romans in the Shadow of Empire
  • By Neil Elliott
$24.49
($29.00)
Elliott offers a fresh and surprising reinterpretation of Paul's letter to the Romans in the context of Roman imperial ideology, bringing to the text the latest insights from classical studies, rhetorical criticism, postcolonial criticism, and people's history. By setting the letter alongside Roman texts (Cicero, Virgil, the Res Gestae of Augustus, Seneca, poets from the age of Nero, as well as later historians and satirists), Elliott provides a dramatic new reading of the letter as Paul's confrontation with the arrogance of empire ??? and with an emerging Christianity already tempted by the seductive ideology of imperial power. The Arrogance of Nations explores such topics as: Empire and the "obedience of faith"; Justice and the arrogance of nations; Mercy and the prerogatives of power; Piety and the scandal of an irreligious race; Virtue and the fortunes of peoples; and Paul and the horizon of the possible.
