The Gendered Palimpsest

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the roles women had in the production, reproduction, and dissemination of early Christian literature. Evidence for women as authors, scribe copyists, book-lenders, and patrons appears in the literary, papyrological, and epigraphic remains. Although normally minimized, the chapter argues that understanding the participation of women in ancient/early Christian “book culture” is important for understanding the dynamics of book production and reception in early Christianity.

Keywords:   authors, book culture, book-lenders, copyists, papyri, patrons, scribes, women
