Reviews

"Berzon's book offers a potent epistemological reflection on the production, organization, and limits of knowledge in late antiquity... a finely articulated meditation on the effects of theological and ethnographic ancient list-making."--Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"Classifying Christians is a remarkable book... indispensable."--Reading Religion
"Todd S. Berzon's Classifying Christians: Ethnography, Heresiology, and the Limits of Knowledge in Late Antiquity partakes of these rich conversations by offering a sustained and convincing reflection on the adaptations, innovations, and antinomies of heresy-writing in the late ancient period."--Ancient Jew Review
"Classifying Christians is a learned, wide-ranging, and exciting new study on ancient Christian heresiology... we look forward to Todd Berzon's next [volume]."--Histos
"This volume clears more space in our scholarly discourse for several topics which are only recently starting to receive a fraction of the attention they deserve."--Zeitschrift fΓΌr Antikes Christentum
"Classifying Christians is a splendid and challenging study, a must-read for scholars in the field of Late Antique theological polemics. . . . immersive and engaging while intellectually challenging at the same time."

--Augustiniana
