When Children Became People

Saturday April 24th 2010, 10:55 am

Lots of you were fascinated by two books I mentioned here last month: “Let the Little Children Come to Me”: Childhood and Children in Early Christianity, by Cornelia B. Horn, John W. Martens, and When Children Became People: The Birth of Childhood in Early Christianity, by O. M. Bakke.

Now BMCR reviews another, somewhat related title: Cecily Hennessy’s Images of Children in Byzantium.
