Product Description: This is a serious interdisciplinary exploration of the role of women in the sub-literature of Christian Apocrypha. Concluding that the Apocryphal Acts originated among women as folk tales, the author of this study hypothesizes that their origins were literary, and that they are legends which present a fantasized alternative reality, providing a clue to the actual historical situations of women in the Greco-Roman world...read more

The particular excitement of this volume lies in its focus on the everyday realities of Christians' lives in the era of Christian ascendancy and Roman decline. Popular fiction, childrearing and toys, rituals of inclusion, the beginning of veneration of saints and shunning of heretics, the ascetic impulse, food practices — all these and more lend color and texture to the story of a "people's" Christianity in this formative stage.
By Virginia Burrus (editor)

Product Description: Virginia Burrus explores one of the strongest and most disturbing aspects of the Christian tradition, its excessive preoccupation with shame. While Christianity has frequently been implicated in the conversion of ancient Mediterranean cultures from shame- to guilt-based, and thus in the emergence of the modern West's emphasis on guilt, Burrus seeks to recuperate the importance of shame for Christian culture...read more

Product Description: Has a repressive morality been the primary contribution of Christianity to the history of sexuality? The ascetic concerns that pervade ancient Christian texts would seem to support such a common assumption. Focusing on hagiographical literature, Virginia Burrus pursues a fresh path of interpretation, arguing that the early accounts of the lives of saints are not antierotic but rather convey a sublimely transgressive "countereroticism" that resists the marital, procreative ethic of sexuality found in other strands of Christian tradition...read more
