Early Christianity and Greek Paideia by Werner Jaeger
Book DescriptionThis small book, the last work of a world-renowned scholar, has established itself as a classic. It provides a superb overview of the vast historical process by which Christianity was Hellenized and Hellenic civilization became Christianized. Jaeger shows that without the large postclassical expansion of Greek culture the rise of a Christian world religion would have been impossible. He explains why the Hellenization of Christianity was necessary in apostolic and postapostalic times; points out similarities between Greek philosophy and Christian belief; discuss such key figures as Clement, Origen, and Gregory of Nyssa; and touches on the controversies that led to the ultimate complex synthesis of Greek and Christian thought.

Paideia, Paperback (October 1986)
Treats paideia, the shaping of Greek character, as the basis for study of Hellenism to explain the interaction between the historical process by which Greek character was formed and the intellectual process by which they constructed their ideal of human personality.
