1 March 2006
Christine Trevett, Christian Women and the Time of the Apostolic Fathers. Corinth, Rome and Asia Minor (Cardiff: University of Wales Press, 2006)
From the dustjacket: The book recovers, from scattered and often minimal evidence, insights into Christian women's lives in this formative period for the Christian church. Individual chapters deal with the politics of disorder in Corinth, Christian women in Rome and Christian women in Asia Minor.
Professor Trevett teaches at the School of Religious and Theological Studies, Cardiff University, and is a founding member of the Centre for Late Antique Religion and Culture.
Critical acclaim: 'This is a novel approach - I know of nothing like it ... the style of writing is both scholarly and accessible to the general reader.' (Carolyn Osiek, Professor of New Testament, Brite Divinity School, Texas)
