520    Recent studies on the development of early Christianity 
       emphasize the fragmentation of the late ancient world 
       while paying less attention to a distinctive feature of 
       the Christianity of this time which is its inter-
       connectivity. Both local and trans-regional networks of 
       interaction contributed to the expansion of Christianity 
       in this age of fragmentation. This volume investigates a 
       specific aspect of this inter-connectivity in the area of 
       the Mediterranean by focusing on the formation and 
       operation of episcopal networks. The rise of the bishop as
       a major figure of authority resulted in an increase in 
       long-distance communication among church elites coming 
       from different geographical areas and belonging to 
       distinct ecclesiastical and theological traditions. 
       Locally, the bishops in their roles as teachers, defenders
       of faith, patrons etc. were expected to interact with 
       individuals of diverse social background who formed their 
       congregations and with secular authorities. Consequently, 
       this volume explores the nature and quality of various 
       types of episcopal relationships in Late Antiquity 
       attempting to understand how they were established, 
       cultivated and put to use across cultural, linguistic, 
       social and geographical boundaries.
