Book review

Displaying, consuming and abstaining from food were powerful social metaphors in the early days of Christianity and were widely open to manipulation. The clergy in particular used occasions of feasting and fasting to define relationships between themselves and the laity and enforce their authority and power over them. These five essays by Bonnie Efros look for evidence of the use of food and drink in the literary works of early medieval Gaul, including saints' Lives , canonical legislation, theological tracts, religious manual and so on. She explores the many different roles of food, for example in defining gender and authority, as a source of healing and power, as an important part of commemoration and celebration in funerary contexts, and as forms of hospitality that could be granted or denied.
