Hermeneutics of Holiness Ancient Jewish and Christian Notions of Sexuality and Religious Community


This book tells the story of how the biblical notions of 'holy person' or 'holy community' comes to be defined by sexual and marriage practices by various interpretive communities in late antiquity. Tracing this development from the biblical texts into the fourth century, Koltun-Fromm argues that sexual practices among Jews and Christians, particularly ascetic sexual practices, are rooted in the history of biblical exegesis and tradition as much as in any other late ancient phenomena.
