Dressing Judeans and Christians in Antiquity / eds. Kristi Upson-Saia, Carly Daniel-Hughes, Alicia J. Batten
Review Date:9 Jul 2015
This is a very welcome addition to the study of dress in antiquity. While studies of clothing, bodily adornment and the body language of antiquity are becoming more frequent, a volume that considers the role of religious dress and the religious meanings of dress among Jews and Christians takes this research in new directions.
