History of the Origins of Christianity. Book III. Saint Paul.

by Ernest Renan


This book belongs to a seven-volume series, the first of which, Life of Jesus, is the most famous (or infamous). Saint Paul, the third volume, covers the life, conversion, missionary journeys, and death of Paul the Apostle. Comparing the events documented in the Book of Acts to other ancient sources, the historian concludes that the dates and places mentioned in Acts are historically accurate. Renan’s account reflects his background in 19th century German higher criticism of the Bible.
