Description

This project investigates the nexus between time and the construction of the feminine in Late Antique and Byzantine hagiographical discourses. By looking both at ways time is experienced through the body and construed by society and religion Maria dell'Isola's project engages with a highly debated problem in Byzantine studies: why did female saints progressively disappear over the Byzantine millennium?
