I am interested in finding bibliographical references narrating the formation of the Biblical canon in the first 5 centuries of the Christian era that are:
Preferably in the English language.
Preferably of an introductory nature. But I am willing to accept those of a non-introductory nature.
Preferably written in the 20th or 21st century.
Rich in archeological references.
Preferably historiographically critical (but not an essential requirement).
