DOCUMENT INFO
Description: The theoretical influences on Schroeder are made clear in the introductory chapter (1-23): John Thompson on ideology ("meaning in the service of power," 9), Michel Foucault on discourse and discipline, and Mary Douglas and others for theories of the body. Schroeder has made a valuable contribution to the study of Shenoute and early monasticism by clearly showing how his concept of interrelated monastic bodies drives ascetic practice, and the book is a good introduction to his thought.
