Summary
Religious education was crucial to the emergence and development of Christianity in late antiquity. It stood within the tension between human and divine agency. This volume analyzes the human agents of such education: bishops, catechists, mothers and fathers, and both male and female monastic teachers. It thus offers a comparative analysis of teachers' roles in Christian educational contexts.
