I’m reading and thoroughly enjoying Rodney Stark’s Cities of God: The Real Story of How Christianity Became an Urban Movement and Conquered Rome. I hope to post something about it in the coming weeks. Meantime, this news item resonated, on the unearthing of a temple of Cybele in Bulgaria. Stark discusses Cybele worship as one of the forerunners of Christianity (in a sociological sense).
