Item Description...
Since the 17th century the history of deaconesses in the Church has been the subject of numerous monographs. What is most evident about the history of deaconesses, however, is how complex the whole subject is. In this exhaustive and thoroughly researched work, Martimort presents a very readable analysis that has become the standard study of the role of women deaconesses in the early Church. He presents in as complete and objective fashion as possible the history, who and what these deaconesses were and what their functions were.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Everything you ever wanted to know on the subject and then even more  May 22, 2008
I read this book after it was recommended by a very learned individual as being THE book to read on the subject. I must say he was absolutely correct. I don't think it's possible to improve on the thoroughness of this study on the institution of deaconesses. Everything from biblical passages to the writings of the Fathers and a thorough investigation of the various rituals for instituting women is covered in exhaustive detail. In addition to just deaconesses, the orders of virgins and widows are covered as well.

The author draws the conclusion that there is a fundamental and essential difference between deaconesses and the male-deaconate. However, the evidence is presented honestly and allowed to speak for itself. The original texts are given so that questions of exact translation can be addressed. My only complaint is that many Latin passages are not translated into English. If you want to read the final word on the subject, this is the book.
