Early Christianity in Context

Monuments and Documents

Do we know anything about Early Christianity in the Holy Land? Father E. Testa tried to answer to this question during his long academic life. He was convinced that Judaism and Early Christianity should be part of the study of Holy Scriptures. The roots of the New Testament are to be found in Judaism. But these roots have given a fruit in Early Christianity. To honour Father E. Testa scholars from different countries, from different faiths and from different schools present original contributions. Their interest is in archaeological reports, but also in the study of literary sources. Documents and Monuments are studied here.
These papers on themes of interest to Father Testa will contribute to a critical discussion of some problems of concern to him. It is through real scholarship that the Studium Biblicum chooses to pay tribute to Father E. Testa. Scholarship is not about agreeing, but about disagreeing, and being able to proof his own affirmations. Dogmatism should leave the field open to pluralism. Parochialism should be uprooted for the twentieth century should be time for dialogue.
