Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521481856, Hardcover)This is a study of the "Christianization" of the city between the third and sixth centuries. The text traces changes in the meaning of urban space and in the ritual practices of Jewish, Christian and Graeco-Roman cults through an investigation of the art and archaeology of four important late antique sites: Dura Europos (mid third century), Jerash and Jerusalem (fourth and fifth centuries) and Ravenna (sixth century). Interwoven in the discussion of the monuments is an assessment of the political circumstances that controlled the writing of their history in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
