Description The authors reconsider the dynamics of Jewish and non-Jewish networks in the spread of early Christianity. For the mathematical modeling of complex processes like these they use the Lukan and Marcionite Christianities as a strictly coded test case. On this reduced historical basis there is constructed a mathematical model of spreading the two modes of Christianity on networks. The nodes of the hypothesized network are common for the both modes – they might interact in ancient Mediterranean sites, but their diffusivities between nodes differ – they might spread on different connections, i.e. Jewish and non-Jewish. The issue is analyzed within the centralized and decentralized networks.
