Editorial Reviews

Review

[Late Antiquity] is a scintillating essay. Brown brilliantly arranges his intuitions around the central theme of the 'public' classical city being replaced by the internalized Christian city of another, non-secular world. That becomes the central pattern of explanation for changes in attitude to sexuality, and for the development of unprecedented respect for sexual purity as an attribute of nuns, monks and bishops. (Thomas Wiedemann Jact Review)

Format: Paperback
Peter Brown is a prolific historian who focuses primarily on the textbook market, a needed professional in a field where many look down on doing such "lay" work. Well written the reader with not be bored. However, the book is so short and not really organized as a textbook so it makes it difficult to grasp how late antiquity differs from the earlier periods or the medieval world.
