Chastity as Autonomy: Women in the Stories of the Apocryphal Acts

This is a serious interdisciplinary exploration of the role of women in the sub-literature of Christian Apocrypha. Concluding that the Apocryphal Acts originated among women as folk tales, the author of this study hypothesizes that their origins were literary, and that they are legends which present a fantasized alternative reality, providing a clue to the actual historical situations of women in the Greco-Roman world.
