About the Author:

Kim Haines-Eitzen is at Cornell University.

Review:


"[Haines-Eitzen's] illumination of the intersection between literacy and power in antiquity and her interesting section on women scribes are important contributions to our understanding of the social and cultural history of early Christianity. Text critics, those interested in the history of manuscripts, and historians of early Christianity will all be interested in this study."-- The Catholic Biblical Quarterly


"Kim Haines-Eitzen has produced a thought-provoking, readable and enjoyable book, essential reading for anyone who desires to know more about the illustrious obscure Christians who copied the New Testament in the earliest days."--Novum Testamentum
