Product Description

This lecture pictures the many ways that gender bending and testing gender boundaries helped resist Roman violence and develop new kinds of communities. It surveys the different dimensions of creativity and patriarchy within Anointed communities, Jesus movements, and wisdom communities during the first two hundred years of the common era. This lecture challenges later masculine power conceptions characteristic of later church and Christianity hierarchies. The lecture displays different kinds of women’s leadership and vulnerable men.

Westar scholars Erin Vearncombe and Celene Lillie lead this discussion. Ninety minutes with Q and A
