Oxford University Press, Oxford (.), 2004. XXVIII,487p. Paperback. Upper corner front cover slightly bumped. 'This is a substantially expanded and completely revised edition of a book originally published in 1988 as Maenads, Martyrs, Matrons, Monastics. 'For scholars and students alike, Ross S. Kraemer's Women's Religions in the Greco-Roman World: A Sourcebook is a welcome contribution primarily to the study of women's roles in Hellenistic Judaism and emergent Christianity, and only secondarily to the study of women's roles in the Greek and Roman polytheistic traditions. (.) 'Women's Religions' selects primary sources (both edited portions of long works and shorter writings in full) from the fourth century B.C.E. to the fifth century C.E. that pertain to women's religiosity in the above traditions or that provide elements of the broader social context for women in Judaism, Christianity, and related traditions bearing a biblical imprint (e.g., God-fearing proselytes). The collection contains a wide range of literary, epigraphic, and papyrological sources in Greek, Latin, Aramaic, Hebrew, Syriac, and Coptic, with two selections from sources dating earlier than the fourth century B.C.E., the Homeric Hymn to Demeter and a selection from Euripides' Bacchae. (.) The translations are in current idiomatic English and are taken from reliable translation sources, with several selections translated by Kraemer herself. (.) 'Women's Religions in the Greco-Roman World' is not a well-balanced sourcebook overall for women's Greek and Roman religions in the Greco-Roman world, but Sections One (Observances, Rituals), Three (Religious Office), and Six (The Feminine Divine) are a fine place to start for such study. However, this collection is a very impressive resource throughout for the study of women and their religious roles in Hellenistic Judaism, God-fearing syncretism, and emergent Christianity.'

Über diesen Titel


This is a substantially expanded and completely revised edition of a book originally published in 1988 as Maenads, Martyrs, Matrons, Monastics. The book is a collection of translations of primary texts relevant to women's religion in Western antiquity, from the fourth century BCE to the fifth century CE. The selections are taken from the plethora of ancient religions, including Judaism and Christianity, and are translated from the six major languages of the Greco-Roman world: Greek, Latin, Aramaic, Hebrew, Syriac, and Coptic. The texts are grouped thematically in six sections: Observances, Rituals, and Festivals; Researching Real Women: Documents to, from and by Women; Religious Office; New Religious Affiliation and Conversion; Holy, Pious, and Exemplary Women; and The Feminine Divine. Women's Religions in the Greco-Roman World provides a unique and invaluable resource for scholars of classical antiquity, early Christianity and Judaism, and women's religion more generally.

Scrinium Classical Antiquity, member of the Dutch Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (NVvA - ILAB), stands for a specialized stock of new, secondhand and antiquarian books about Classical Antiquity. The main theme of our books is Classical Antiquity: texts and commentaries, translations, archeology, philosophy, travel, history, mythology, books for young people, philology, law, reception of classical motives in Middle Ages, Renaissance and our own time and neo-Hellenika (conptemporary Greece), and many more subjects. A more modest quantity of our books concerns countries, civilisations and religious movements on the edges of the classical world: e.g. Egypt, Middle East and Early Christianity. New books are partly in stock, partly to be ordered from publishers. We are connected to a large number of publishers and distributors, established both in the Netherlands and abroad.
