6. Description Abstract This chapter discusses the life and work of Gilles Deleuze in the context of critical theory and early Christianity. The chapter begins by delineating Deleuze’s rhizomatic approach to history and texts, an approach avoiding hierarchical, rigid, tree-like structures, but one focusing on moving intersections and networks in all directions. Next, the chapter outlines Deleuze’s life, providing context for his concepts. Finally, the chapter summarizes the three essays in this section by Bradley McLean, Matthew Whitlock and Philip Tite, and Sharon Jacob, and suggests further research on minor and major languages in early Christian texts in light of Deleuze’s concepts of minor and major literature.
