Maranatha: Women's Funerary Rituals and Christian Origins
Corley, Kathleen E.

Minneapolis: Fortress, 2010 pp. xvi + 262. $35.00


Description: Kathleen Corley continues her examination of women's roles at the beginnings of Christianity with this groundbreaking new study of women's funerary rituals and lament customs in the ancient Roman world. She finds in these rituals important connections with Gospel accounts of women's visits to the tomb of Jesus and of his resurrection "on the third day." Examining texts, catacomb art, and inscriptions, she articulates a new and exciting role for women mourners at the heart of Christian origins.

Subjects: Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Early Church Origins
