'Roman Edessa' offers a comprehensive and erudite analysis of the ancient city of Edessa (modern day Urfa, Turkey), which constituted a remarkable amalgam of the East and the West. Among the areas explored are - the cultural life and antecedents of Edessa; - Edessene religion; - the extent of the Hellenization at Edessa before the advent of Christianity; - the myth of an exchange of letters between a King Abgar and Jesus.
