Summary "An End to Enmity" casts light upon the shadowy figure of the "wrongdoer" of Second Corinthians by exploring the social and rhetorical conventions that governed friendship, enmity and reconciliation in the Greco-Roman world. The book puts forward a novel hypothesis regarding the identity of the "wrongdoer" and the nature of his offence against Paul. Drawing upon the prosopographic data of Paul's Corinthian epistles and the epigraphic and archaeological record of Roman Corinth, the author shapes a robust image of the kind of individual who did Paul "wrong" and caused "pain" to both Paul and the Corinthians. The concluding chapter reconstructs the history of Paul's relationship with an influential convert to Christianity at Corinth.
