An apostolic lifestyle characterized by total material renunciation, homelessness, and begging was practiced by monks throughout the Roman Empire in the fourth and fifth centuries. Such monks often served as spiritual advisors to urban aristocrats whose patronage gave them considerable authority and independence from episcopal control. This book is the first comprehensive study of this type of Christian poverty and the challenge it posed for episcopal authority and the promotion of monasticism in late antiquity. Focusing on devotional practices, Daniel Caner draws together diverse testimony from Egypt, Syria, Asia Minor, and elsewhere—including the Pseudo-Clementine Letters to Virgins, Augustine's On the Work of Monks, John Chrysostom's homilies, legal codes—to reveal gospel-inspired patterns of ascetic dependency and teaching from the third to the fifth centuries. Throughout, his point of departure is social and cultural history, especially the urban social history of the late Roman empire. He also introduces many charismatic individuals whose struggle to persist against church suppression of their chosen way of imitating Christ was fought with defiant conviction, and the book includes the first annotated English translation of the biography of Alexander Akoimetos (Alexander the Sleepless). Wandering, Begging Monks allows us to understand these fascinating figures of early Christianity in the full context of late Roman society.

Spanning the five continents, Wandering Women presents travel writings from the 1790s to the 1990s. These thirty-seven intrepid travellers include Anna Jane Thornton who posed as a male sailor in order to get to New York. Beatrice Grimshaw, world-record cyclist who is still remembered in Papua and Daisy Bates who recorded the lives of the Australian Aborigines. These are tales drawn from journals, autobiographies, letters and private diaries as well as the travel books of present day professionals such as Dervla Murphy. These women write as wives or companions, as political exiles, emigrants, nuns, journalists, servants or anthropologists. Across Russia, Canada and the Atlantic ocean to the USA, the Pacific islands, Africa and Tibet, they travel by canoe and camel, ox-wagon and bicycle. Some are solo explorers, some travel on duty, for pleasure or for economic gain. Most are adventurous, some foolhardy but all write in vivid and memorable ways.
