Markus Bockmuehl studies Simon Peter's highly diverse profile and reception in second-century Rome and Syria, where certain communities and individuals continued to claim direct or proximate access to living memory of the apostles and their disciples. In Part I Bockmuehl documents the persistent presence of Peter in personal and collective memory, and illustrates Peter's place in relation to modern study of Jesus and Paul. In Part II, the author attends to the complexity of that Petrine memory in Syria, to the debate about the apostle's death in Rome, and to the puzzling figure of Simon Magus in the Pseudo-Clementine literature. Part III links Peter's effective aftermath to more conventional historical and exegetical questions about the New Testament, while attempting in turn to show how these historical insights illuminate the profile to which he gave riseJames the Brother of Jesus: Recovering the True History of Early Christianity. ...
