Augustine and Gender

The relationship between Augustine of Hippo and the subject of gender raises important questions. Augustine and Gender address these issues head-on. This volume offers original interpretations of the many ways that gender appears throughout Augustine's thought and works. Contributions draw from a wide range of sources including Augustine's sermons, letters, treatises, and dialogues. Readers will discover detailed analyses about the nature of desire and emotion, the politics of sex and marriage, the possibilities of human speech and exegesis, and the hope of education and community. In addition, this book is a persuasive demonstration of the benefits of bringing together Augustinian scholars with the most pressing concerns of the present.
