  • Peter Oakes combines archaeology and biblical studies to give the reader a fresher, deeper understanding of Pauls letter to the Romans. An investigation of the archaeological evidence from Pompeii helps us to think about the ways in which different people - such as a slave girl, a cabinet-maker-cum-surgeon and an educated slave concubine - might have understood Pauls letter when they first heard it.
