Jorunn Okland provides an informed and illuminating examination of what Paul can tell us about divisions between sanctuary and other space, about men and women, and about ideas of private and public. Women in Their Place is an interdisciplinary, theoretically informed reading of Paul's utterances on women in 1 Corinthians 11-14 (the section of the letter dealing with ritual gatherings), in light of ancient gender models as expressed in temples, rituals, and literary texts. It examines 1 Corinthians 11-14 within a larger context of gender models and sanctuary spaces, establishing a distinction between private, public and sacred/sanctuary space and arguing that, in much of 1 Corinthians, Paul is concerned with the marking of firm boundaries around the sanctuary space established by rituals in the ekklesia, which would effectively engender church as male space. This is volume 269 in the Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement Series.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review International Review of Biblical Studies, vol 51, 2004/05
'Women in Their Place is a much longer book, based on a doctoral thesis, and therefore a great deal more elaborate intellectually, inclined to leave no stone unturned, no avenue unexplored.' Revd Leslie Houlden, Church Times, 14 July 2006--Sanford Lakoff "Church Times "
"This is a very important book that should have a significant impact on Pauline scholarship" Peter Oakes, SOTS Booklist 2007--Sanford Lakoff
