This book is misnamed; it ought, rather, have a title more like this: _Second-Century Christians and the Rhetoric of Empire_. While this book does deal to some extent with art and architecture, its real focus is on the geography of empire (whether physical or mental). While this book is certainly interesting, one needs an interest in the second-century Christian apologists (a very interesting case is made that that is not what they are, but that's what we call them...) to really appreciate it.
