Abstract This paper analyzes the common application of a purported Roman custom of tying a dead body to criminals as a means to punish them (nekrophoria), to Rm 7:24. It questions what the ancient world really knew about nekrophoria. Then, it assesses the evidence from the earliest Christian commentaries on Romans. Finally, it analyzes the implications - for Pauline theology - of the application of nekrophoria to Rm 7:24.
