The international conference held in Limerick, Ireland, in May 2005 produced far more than the usual collection of loosely related papers. Rather, this volume from the seventeen contributors demarcates and organizes a whole field, serving as an indispensable introduction to intertextuality in general and as an original examination of the topic in relation to the New Testament epistles.
