Sex and Sexuality in Early Christianity, Spring 2016

Is it better to get married or to remain a virgin? Have Christians always thought that homosexuality was a sin? Why does it seem like all heretics are sexual deviants? This exhibit scratches at the surface of the various perspectives on and rhetorical uses of sex, gender, and sexuality in early Christian literature.

As part of the Sex and Sexuality in Early Christianity seminar, students engage in a research project where they select one aspect of sex and sexuality in early Christianity (a figure, a theme, a movement) and, in the process of researching it, create various documents, images, videos, blogs, and other media which become "artifacts" demonstrating cultural exploration and engagement. This archive is where these "artifacts" are stored.
