Abstract

This article compares the views of the church fathers Basil of Caesarea, John Chrysostom and Ambrosiaster on the treatment of slaves. The views of the authors are examined individually and in detail. An analysis is made of the extent to which the views of these three 4th-century church fathers exhibit continuity with Christian and Stoic views from the 1st and 2nd centuries on the treatment of slaves. Particular attention is given to the different tasks given to slaves, their reward and punishment, sexual abuse and the relationships slaves had, along with assessing the impact of the "slave of God" rhetoric and corporeal heteronomy for the treatment of physical slaves.
