Reviews

"A creative, valuable contribution to scholarship on Epiphanius particularly, and fourth-century Christianity generally. Jacobs's 'cultural biography' idea is noteworthy, and while his bridge between Epiphanius and his culture could be more explicit, this volume manageably realizes that method. Good scholarship merits critical scrutiny, but this reviewer wholeheartedly recommends this book--ingenious, analytic, and readable--to today's generation of ancient Christian scholars."-- (02/03/2017)
"This is a well-written and well-argued book which all scholars of Late Antiquity and Early Christianity can read with benefit."--Studies in Late Antiquity
"Jacobs offers a theoretically sophisticated cultural biography that places this maligned figure at the center of late antiquity rather than (comfortably) at its margins."--Church History
"In his study of the fourth-century bishop and ascetic Epiphanius, Andrew Jacobs makes another illuminating intervention into the history of ancient Christianity... exemplary and brilliant."--Bryn Mawr Classic Review
