An finish to Enmity casts mild upon the shadowy determine of the perpetrator of moment Corinthians by means of exploring the social and rhetorical conventions that ruled friendship, enmity and reconciliation within the Greco-Roman international. The publication places ahead a singular speculation in regards to the identification of the perpetrator and the character of his offence opposed to Paul.
