Larry Hurtado examines the earliest physical records of a Christian attempt to express their faith and identify themselves in ways that leave physical and visual artifacts. Focusing primarily on the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD, Larry concentrates on the Christian preference for the codex over the scroll and early Christian scribal practices to shed light on Early Christian piety and devotion.
