vol. 4 (2002), xii + 166pp,

ISBN 0 9577483 45

The first critical text of the Life since 1888, this edition also provides a lucid English translation, extensive annotation, and a major introduction that demonstrates the third-century provenance of the work. The book discusses parallels with Philostratus and Eunapius, sets the work in the context of a Christianity troubled by Montanists and Marcionites, and discusses the liturgical life of third-century Smyrna.
