Melania: Early Christianity Through the Life of One Family
Melania: Early Christianity Through the Life of One Family

Chin, Catherine M (Editor), Schroeder, Caroline T (Editor)

"Melania the Elder and her granddaughter Melania the Younger were major figures in early Christian history, using their wealth, status, and forceful personalities to shape the development of nearly every aspect of the religion we now know as Christianity. This volume examines the influence that these two women had on the development of Christianity and provides an insightful portrait of the their legacies in the modern world. Instead of the traditionally patriarchal view, this perspective gives a poignant and sometimes surprising view of how the rise of Christian institutions in the Roman Empire shaped the understanding of women's roles in the larger world."--Provided by publisher.
