Were the early Christians uneducated?

Professor Edwin A. Judge is one Australia's most respected academics. After studying at Cambridge, he moved to Sydney University and then on to Macquarie where he was appointed to the inaugural chair of Ancient History. For twenty-five years, and since his retirement, his interests have included a study of early Christianity in its Roman context. Professor Judge helped to collect the study materials in the Ancient History Documentary Research Centre and to establish the Museum of Ancient Cultures, one of the finest institutions of its kind. He has published widely (over 400 articles, books, and essays) and served as editor of the Journal of Religious History.

In this interview with John Dickson of the Centre for Public Christianity based in Sydney, Professor Judge talks about the class profile of the early Christian communities.
