New from Fortress: Apostle to the Conquered

A recent announcement from Fortress:

Apostle to the Conquered: Reimagining Paul’s Mission

“The Apostle to the nations” in political perspective

Davina C. Lopez here combines attention to Roman visual and literary representations of conquered nations with a gender-critical “re-imagination” of Paul’s apostleship. The result is a new and more critical perspective on the systematic violence of the Roman Empire, and a renewed understanding of “Paul’s politics of the new creation.”


Introduction: The Problem with “the Nations”

The Fate of the Nations in Roman Imperial Representation
Destiny and the Naturalization of Conquest
Conversion, Call, and Consciousness
The Politics of the New Creation

Conclusion: Dislocating Paul’s “Universalism”

Davina C. Lopez is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida and serves on the American Academy of Religion’s Board of Directors.
