Quis maritus salvetur? Studies on the Radicaliziation of the Virginal Ideal in the 4th century

Untersuchungen zur Radikalisierung des Jungfräulichkeitsideals im 4. Jahrhundert

The significance of the ascetic ideal in Christianity grew during the 4th century. It became a critical criterion for evaluating a Christian life. The groups presented in this study especially radicalized the ideal of sexual abstinence. They raised virginity in an exclusive sense to a sole principle for a legitimate Christian way of life, thereby coming into conflict with the greater Church.
