The Bone Gatherers: The Lost Worlds of Early Christian Women

By Nicola Denzey | Go to book overview

NOTES

Introduction

1. For a description of the discovery of Cornelius's epitaph, see Rodolfo Lanciani, Pagan and Christian Rome (New York: Houghton Mi‰in, 1892), 215–216. It is, of course, not clear that the stone was engraved under Lucina's orders; some have attempted to link it to the late-fourth-century epigrapher Furius Dionysus Philocalus.

2. No archaeological evidence has been discovered; for early reports, see J. Stevenson, "L'area di Lucina sulla Via Ostiense" in Nuovo Bulletino di Archeologia Cris- tiana (1898): 68ff.

3. Generosa's name is known from the sarcophagus inscription when the bones of the saint were transferred to the church of St. Bibiana. See O. Marucchi, Manual of Christian Archaeology, 4th Italian ed., translated and adapted by Hubert Vecchierello (Paterson, N.J.: St. Anthony Guild Press, 1935), 152; see also Lanciani's version of the story in Lanciani, Pagan and Christian Rome, 332–334.

4. AA.SS, Oct. XI (Paris, 1870), 482; Augostino Amore, I martiri di Roma (Rome: Augustinianum, 1975), 56.

5. For the text, see the Passio Polychronii 29 (BHL, 6884); and H. Delehaye, "Recherches sur le légendier romain: la passion de S. Polychronius," Analecta Bollandiana 51 (1933): 93; Amore, Martiri, 96.

6. Marucchi, Manual, 147.

7. For Cecilia's story, see my chapter 6.

8. R. Krautheimer, S. Corbett, and W. Frankl, eds, Corpus Basilicarum Christiano- rum Romae, Vol. 2 (Vatican City, 1959), 192–193.

9. Matt 27:61–28:20; Mark 16:1–8; Luke 23:55–24:11; John 20.

10. Mark 14:9. For a groundbreaking, feminist theological interpretation of the passage, see Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza, In Memory of Her: A Feminist Theo- logical Reconstruction of Christian Origins (New York: Crossroads, 1983), esp. xliii–xliv.
