A book-length history of changes in the understanding of death in 4th-century Christianity and its impact on the roots of religious violence.

A history of how in late antiquity Christians began to think of death as a terrifying, difficult experience followed by judgment and punishment, this book argues that the cultural changes that defined death as a moment of reckoning also facilitated the late ancient adoption of violence against others for ideological purposes.
