Documents have been selected to illustrate various aspects of life in the Graeco-Roman world including such topics as how letters were sent, transport and communication, Roman administration, benefaction, the reading of John's Gospel in the early Church, the adoption of the codex format in Christian texts and the legal topics of forcible acquisition, slavery and execution.^
This series, produced by the Ancient History Documentary Research Centre at Macquarie University, keeps New Testament and early church researchers abreast of emerging documentary evidence by reproducing and reviewing recently published Greek inscriptions and papyri that help illumine the context in which the Christian church developed.
