Mina Monier argues that Luke-Acts shared with 1 Clement a concern to define and defend a type of Christian piety that would not offend Roman sensibilities. The author used the Temple of Jerusalem positively, as a platform for showing Christian piety towards ancient worship, ancestral customs and God of antiquity.
Mina Monier is postdoctoral research fellow in the New Testament and digital humanities in Lausanne, Switzerland..
