1 Fathers of the Church The Human Couple in the Fathers

The patristic texts on the theme of the human couple which have been brought together in this volume, underscore the interpersonal rapport between men and women within the matrimonial structure of the first centuries of Christianity. In the context of the works examined, the couple -- that is, the union of one man and one woman -- exists only within the bonds of marriage with all the prerogatives and problems, rights and duties which marriage entails. From the authors in question -- including Tertullian, Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Lactantius, Ambrose, Jerome, Augustine, Paulinus of Nola and John Chrysostom -- notwithstanding their diversity of expression, emerges a consistent picture of the couple with their complementary roles emphasized.362 pp
