Unreliable Witnesses

Religion, Gender, and History in the Greco-Roman Mediterranean

Ross Shepard Kraemer

  • An analysis of the field from a recognized leader
  • Fresh, controversial interpretation of both cornerstone and under-examined texts in the study of ancient women's religions
  • The argument that religion generally authorizes and promulgates cultural constructions of gender difference, and that this difference is almost always construed hierarchically
