A somewhat self-critical discussion of the role played by socio-historical information (e.g. about money in social relations) in historical interpretation of ancient and early Christian history, and of the standpoints of Gerd Theissen, Justin Meggitt and Eckehard and Wolfgang Stegemann in this area. The article also explores the role of sociological or social-scientific models in historical reconstruction, connecting to the methodological dispute between David Horrell and Philip Esler (in JSNT 2001) concerning how every model and every use of it presupposes a certain understanding of reality and ideas concerning the character of human action.
