Item Description...
Overview
This is the first paperback edition of the enlightening Oxford University hardcover published in 2002. Glancy here situates early Christian slavery in its broader cultural setting, arguing that modern scholars have consistently underestimated the pervasive impact of slavery on the institutional structures, ideologies, and practices of the early churches - and upon the bodies of the enslaved. Her careful attention to the bodily experience of subjection and violation that constituted slavery makes this an indispensable book for anyone interested in slavery in early Christianity. Includes special chapters on Jesus and Paul.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A welcome addition to both university library and private religious studies collections.  Dec 9, 2006
Jennifer A. Glancy (Professor of Religious Studies, LeMoyne College) presents Slavery in Early Christianity, a highly scholarly examination of the prevalence of slaves and slaveholders among early Christians, particularly in the Roman Empire. Chapters scrutinize how the social histories of emerging Christian churches had their rhetoric affected by the influence of slavery, the life experiences of slaves and what it meant to be a slave in the first Christian centuries. Of particular interest is the figure of the slave in the sayings of Jesus Christ, an aspect examined at length in historical and social as well as a religious context. A welcome addition to both university library and private religious studies collections.
 
Try looking at the texts with fresh eyes  Aug 6, 2003
Ms Glancy looks at the first century through the eyes of the twentieth and these opening years of the 21st, and is so deeply is so deeply involved with the discussions between Foucaultian and anti-Foucaultian feminists that she can hardly see the old first century texts at all.

This is a pity, because she has good instincts, and now and then they break through the inter-academic jockeying.

 
A noteworthy contribution, superbly written, well researched  Apr 10, 2002
Dr. Glancy has filled a void in the realm of Classical/religious studies in addressing the issue of slavery in the ancient Christian world. It is a readable, superbly researched text. Every college and university library should have this volume in the collection.
