Mapping uncharted territory in the study of liturgy’s past, this book offers a history to contemporary questions around gender and liturgical life. Berger looks at liturgy’s past through the lens of gender history, understood as attending not only to the historically prominent binary of “men” and “women” but to all gender identities, including inter-sexed persons, ascetic virgins, eunuchs, and priestly men. Drawing on historical case studies, Berger explores traditional fundamentals such as liturgical space and eucharistic practice and new ways of studying the past.
