Makings of an Average Joe : Gender, the Everyday, and the Reception of Joseph of Nazareth in Early

Makings of an Average Joe : Gender, the Everyday, and the Reception of Joseph of Nazareth in Early - image 1 of 1

About this item

This study confronts competing views of conventional masculinity found in the earliest, and often overlooked, receptions of the character of Joseph of Nazareth found in the Gospels of Luke and Matthew, the Protevangelium of James, and the Infancy Gospel of Thomas. The author exposes the political mechanics behind Joseph’s reception, opening interpretive possibilities for rethinking normative views of manliness in early Christianity and beyond.
