Women, Men and Eunuchs

Liz James




Gender in Byzantium


For the first time, the collected papers in this volume present an introduction both to the history of women, men and eunuchs, an apparent third sex, in Byzantium and to the various theoretical and methodological approaches through which the topic can be examined. The contributors use evidence from both texts and images to give a wide-ranging picture of the place of women in Byzantium, which will fascinate anyone interested in ancient and medieval history and gender studies.
