Product Description

This book goes where few others have gone. It explores the early women leaders in the evolution of Christian spirituality. Early church histories frequently make brief comments of women dwelling in the desert, living as urban solitaries, or residing in or near monastic ommunities. Palladius, in his Lausiac History, estimated that the women outnubered the men two to one, and yet it still is the stories of the men, not the women, that are preserved and told. So here Laura Swan tells the story of those women, and gives them the credit due to them. This book goes where few others have gone.

Publisher's Description

In introducing readers to the sayings, lives, stories, and spirituality of women in the early Christian desert and monastic movement, the author finally sets the record straight that women played an important, influential role in early Christianity. The book journeys between desert, monastery, and city to reveal the stories of ascetics and solitaries whose stories rarely are heard.
