    Abstract:
    This essay explores the way that early Christianity interacted with the material environment as an expression of Roman power. The Roman imperial aesthetics of building activity and cityscapes is a material context in which to read the curious spatial rhetoric of buildings and bodies that we find the Epistle to the Ephesians in the New Testament.
