Rejecting Roman feminine virtue in its pure form, Christianity claimed a moral superiority in its ideals of romance, and portrayed women seeking more spiritual goals. Cooper studies how this connected with social and religious change.

The bible is full of mysterious ideas and metaphysical concepts that are complex enough to turn our ways upside down . Though , some schools of thoughts put their heads on the block to defend the accuracy of the holy book ; but influenced , at the same time by the spiritual presence of God and the traditional effigy of idolatry , that accuracy is flooded by a stream of doctrines , dogma , norms and traditions . So the author of this book has developed an elaborate rationalization which hold that the code of ethics embodied in the bible produced the humorous theories of nations and peoples that are designed to retard men’s understanding of the scriptures . In keeping with the views of religious leaders , and through investigative observations of the scanty knowledge of many teachers of the scriptures , the author has found evidence of a combination of logic and legend .

This Female Man of God

This book is a study of the contribution of women to the development of the newly legitimate Christian church in the twilight of the Western Roman Empire. There are many women noted for the example of their life in this period, regarded amongst the luminaries of the day; but while their male mentors, the patristic authors have retained their fame, the women who surrounded and influenced them have all but disappeared from sight. The women themselves are partly to blame for this, for in order to be pious it made sense to disguise one's sex sometimes literally: Dr Cloke gives examples of those whose sex was discovered only after their death - they sought to become androgynous, a third sex before God. This book looks at a multitude of examples in some detail and takes an overview of the role of Christian women at this time. It should appeal not only to historians, classicists and theologians, but also to anyone who takes a general interest in the changing status of women over the the centuries.

Saint Ambrose, a fourth century Bishop of Milan, is a prominent figure of the early Christian Church, initiating ideas that widely impacted medieval conceptions of church and state relations. Serving as a model bishop that viewed the church as rising above the ruins of the Roman Empire, Ambrose is also remembered as the teacher that converted and baptised St. Augustine of Hippo, the great Christian theologian. Ambrose’s literary works, principally sermons, have been acclaimed as masterpieces of Latin eloquence, providing invaluable models of the transmission of Greek philosophy and theology in the West. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Latin texts.

Saint Ambrose, also known as Aurelius Ambrosius, is one of the four original doctors of the Church. He was the Bishop of Milan and became one of the most important theological figure of the 4th century. He is considered a saint by the Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodox Church, Anglican Communion, and various Lutheran denominations, and venerated as the patron saint of Milan. Ambrose's intense episcopal consciousness furthered the growing doctrine of the Church and its sacerdotal ministry, while the prevalent asceticism of the day, continuing the Stoic and Ciceronian training of his youth, enabled him to promulgate a lofty standard of Christian ethics. Thus we have the De officiis ministrorum, De viduis, De virginitate and De paenitentia. In De Officiis, the most influential of his surviving works, and one of the most important texts of patristic literature, he reveals his views connecting justice and generosity by asserting these practices are of mutual benefit to the participants.
