Product Description

Providing the first comprehensive look at women's religions in Greco-Roman antiquity, Ross Shepard Kraemer vividly recreates the religious lives of early Christian, Jewish, and pagan women. With many fascinating examples describing Greek women's devotion to goddesses, rites of Roman matrons, Jewish women in rabbinic and diaspora communities, Christian women's struggles to exercise authority and autonomy, and women's roles as leaders in the full spectrum of Greco-Roman religions, Kraemer reveals the connection between the social constraints under which women lived, and their religious beliefs and practices. Based on an astonishing variety of primary sources, Her Share of the Blessings is an insightful work that goes beyond the limitations of previous scholarship to provide a more accurate portrait of women in the Greco-Roman world.
