520    "This monograph examines the nature of the earliest 
       Christian meeting places, with a special emphasis on the 
       formation of sacred space. The use of domestic spaces by 
       these early groups is widely accepted, but the spaces 
       themselves are usually understood as having been neutral, 
       rather than sacred. In this study, I propose not only that
       these domestic spaces were considered sacred space by the 
       Christian communities that used them, but that they were 
       also complex ritual loci in their own right. Mapping what 
       is known from early Christian texts onto the 
       archaeological data for Roman domestic space here provides
       a new lens through which to examine the relationship 
       between early Christians and their meeting space. In many 
       cases, this meeting space would have included the presence
       of the Roman domestic cult. Despite the fact that the 
       domestic cult was a polytheistic one, at odds with 
       monotheistic Christianity, I assert that its practices 
       likely continued in those places used for worship by the 
       Christians. I also argue that continued practice of the 
       domestic cult in Roman domestic spaces did not preclude 
       the house-church Christians from understanding their 
       rituals or their meeting places as sacred. Theories of 
       sacred space and ritual practice are engaged to 
       demonstrate that the house-church Christians constructed 
       temporary sacred space through ritual enactment. The 
       exploration of meeting places as both inhabited and sacred
       space raises a host of questions about early Christian 
       identity, ritual affiliation, and domestic practice."--
