When she published "In Memory of Her: A Feminist Theological Reconstruction of Christian Origins" in 1983, Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza revolutionized the world of New Testament studies. She offered in that book a method for interpreting early Christian history that recovers the role of women in pre-Pauline Christian communities. She then painted a portrait of the early Christian ekklesia of women as a point of departure for a feminist biblical spirituality. Later works engaged subjects such as hermeneutics, the book of Revelation, and rhetoric and ethics.
