In the second century world of Roman empire and Greek culture, how does Christianity position itself as a new ‘philosophy’, a way of living? This talk will seek both to inform and entertain, as we look at one early Christian text’s presentation of an ideal masculinity, over against some other literary models from the romantic literature of the day. What did a ‘real man’ look like – and how was he supposed to behave?
