Item description for Transformative Encounters: Jesus and Women Reviewed (Biblical Interpretation Series) by Ingrid R. Kitzberger...
Tracing the development of Carmelite foundations in medieval Catalonia, this work shows how they reflected the dichotomy between the Order's eremitical origins and the active mendicant apostolate in which it was engaged. In discussing Carmelite life in an urban setting, mention is made of secular involvement with its positive and negative effects, popular piety and miraculous sightings and outstanding intellectual achievement. The conclusion raises the question that Carmelite friars might have migrated to Europe at an earlier date than traditionally suggested; similarly, that the inaccurate foundation document for Peralada dated 1206 was a 14th-century falsification. The appendices provide archival documents, names of priors, royal chaplains, students and graduates, and a list of known medieval Catalan Carmelites.

Reviews - What do customers think about Transformative Encounters: Jesus and Women Reviewed (Biblical Interpretation Series)?
Excellent for the right audience Jan 1, 2008
As a sociologically interpretive take on the Gospels, this is an excellent compilation; unfortunately, I was looking for a scholarly book describing the status and roles of women in Second Temple Judaism, and this is not it.
All of the scholars write from different sociological standpoints - a Mexican woman from a bordertown discussed how Jesus and the adulterous woman lived in figurative borderlands, and a white South African related Gentile women to apartheid.
Others focuses are the medical take on demon possession, the false image of women's rights in Jesus' time, and the world of Joanna/Mary Magdalene (a favorite of mine). And by the way, this book sells for ~$100 elsewhere, and members with coupons can get up to 50% off, plus you can see the Table of Contents!
