Summary

"This collection's foci--gender, asceticism, and historiography--outline the very engines of the cultural turn in the discipline and show early Christian studies at its most engaged with current trends throughout the humanities."--Derek Krueger, Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro and author of "Writing and Holiness: The Practice of Authorship in the Early Christian East"
