Blessed Among Women?

Mothers and Motherhood in the New Testament

Alicia D Myers

  • Uses ancient medical literature to discuss understandings of female bodies, conception and generation, breastmilk and breastfeeding in New Testament contexts
  • Underscores the importance of corporeal constructions as a part of gender constructions and theologies
  • Explores motherhood themes throughout the New Testament instead of limiting to a single character
  • Analyzes extra canonical Christian texts to reflect on continued debates over motherhood beyond the New Testament
