Enslaved Leadership in Early Christianity challenges readers to re-think common perceptions about how enslaved persons participated in first- and second-century CE Christian communities. Using archaeology and ancient literature, the book destabilizes structures of domination and reimagines early Christian communities through the ambiguities of power.
