Images of Women in Antiquity by Averil Cameron

Book Description

The agenda and significance of women in antiquity has gained considerable attention in recent years. In this book diverse roles for and attitudes to women in ancient societies are explored: women as witches, as courtesans, as mothers, as priestesses, as nuns, as heiresses and typically as eranged. The shifting focus is variously economic, social, biological, religious and artistic. The studies cover a wide geographic and chronological range, from the ancient Hittite kingdom to the Byzantine Empires. This book has been brought thoroughly up to date with the addition of a new introduction and addenda to individual chapters.

Books By Author Averil Cameron

Dialoguing in Late Antiquity by Averil Cameron Dialoguing in Late Antiquity, Paperback (May 2014)

Averil Cameron refutes an argument by some scholars that Christians did not dialogue after a wall of silence came down in the fifth century AD. Cameron shows that in late antiquity and throughout Byzantium Christians debated and wrote philosophical, literary, and theological dialogues, and she makes a case for their centrality in Greek literature.

Byzantine Matters by Averil Cameron Byzantine Matters, Hardback (May 2014)

For many of us, Byzantium remains "byzantine" - obscure, marginal, difficult. This book presents an original and personal view of the challenges and questions facing historians of Byzantium today.

Mediterranean World in Late Antiquity by Averil Cameron Mediterranean World in Late Antiquity, Hardback (September 2011)

"Simultaneously published in the USA and Canada"--T.p. verso.

428 AD by Averil Cameron 428 AD, Paperback (April 2011)

By focusing on a single year not overshadowed by an epochal event, this title provides a fresh look at Mediterranean civilization in the midst of enormous change - as Christianity takes hold in rural areas across the empire, as western Roman provinces fall away from those in the Byzantine east, and as power shifts from Rome to Constantinople.
