RELI 152 - (HP) Women in Early Christianity

Semester Hours: 3


Periodically
This course will examine the representations of women in early Christianity, focusing primarily on the first four centuries of Christian history. Students will be introduced to constructions of sex and gender in ancient Greek and Roman philosophy and medical literature and the role of women in contemporaneous pagan and Jewish cultures. From there the course will focus on intra-Christian conflicts involving the role of women, in particular, martyrdom, orthodoxy and heresy, and asceticism. Throughout the course, students will wrestle with the problem of using ancient sources to determine social practice.
