Professor Dihle sees the Greek and Latin literature between the 1st century B.C. and the 6th century A.D. as an organic progression. He builds on Schlegel's observation that art, customs and political life in classical antiquity are inextricably entwined and therefore should not be examined separately. Dihle does not simply consider narrowly defined `literature', but all works of cultural socio-historical significance, including Jewish and Christian literature, philosophy and science. Despite this, major authors like Seneca, Tacitus and Plotinus are considered individually. This work is an authoritative yet personal presentation of seven hundred years of literature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book is a wonderful addition to the literary history of the roman Empire--and of the church. It covers classical, Jewish, and Christian literature in Greek and Latin down to the eight century. And that makes it a unique addition to the repertoire available to students... Dihle knows this literature well...Anyone who reads this graceful book will be more learned than before, and certainly more understanding of the course of Christian history. I hope it gets the wide reading it deserves."
-Edgar Krentz, Currents in Theology and Mission
