This chapter creates a picture of food and its uses in the wider world of which early Christianity was a part, starting with the relatively narrow expectations of the poor and moving to the highly complex and differentiated world of banquets, sacrifice, and matters for dispute regarding eating and meals, and particularly the edibility, desirability, or appropriateness of certain foods.
