Abstract

"The tales of the virgin martyrs typically emphasize the torture and mutilation of beautiful young women. To the modern reader, these medieval texts seem like exercises in sadism, but they provided medieval women such as Hildegard of Bingen and Joan of Arc with role models who helped them to shape their own extraordinary destinies. This book explores the ability of the virgin body to generate contradictory meanings, both repressive and liberating, depending on who told the tale and how it was told."--Jacket.

Abstract

The significance of the ascetic ideal in Christianity grew during the 4th century. It became a critical criterion for evaluating a Christian life. The groups presented in this study especially radicalized the ideal of sexual abstinence. They raised virginity in an exclusive sense to a sole principle for a legitimate Christian way of life, thereby coming into conflict with the greater Church.
