Research Project

Practising the City: Spatial Imagination, Imperial Location, and Reciprocal Processes of Urban Transformation in Second Century Christianity

This project seeks to contribute to a social geographic consideration of emergent Christianity in different spatial contexts and moments of engagement with its larger Roman imperial urban contexts. The spatial turn taken in a variety of disciplines has so far rarely been taken in the study of either New Testament or extra-canonical Christian texts and combining spatial study with consideration of emergent urban Christian religion awaits sustained application.
