Most widely held works by Kathleen E Corley
Jesus and Mel Gibson's The passion of the Christ : the film, the gospels and the claims of history( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mel Gibson's The passion of the Christ is not only a powerful and evocative film, it is also an important cultural phenomenon. Claims and accusations about this film have been made in newspapers on television, and from pulpits. In particular, claims have been made that the film is accurate to the stories in the Gospels and to history"--Back cover
Private women, public meals : social conflict in the synoptic tradition by Kathleen E Corley( Book )

11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work, a revision of the author's Claremont dissertation, examines how women's differing roles in the ancient Greco-Roman world are reflected in the Gospel portraits of women. Focusing on women's varying portrayals in meal or banquet settings, Corley uncovers evidence that women's roles were undergoing radical social change throughout the Greco-Roman world - both in moving toward equality and in returning to a more traditional role. Such spadework helps us in analyzing the conflicting portrayals of women in the New Testament Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Bibliography, notes, and an index of ancient sources render this an invaluable tool for studying women in the Synoptics and ancient social attitudes toward women. This volume should be of particular interest to pastors and teachers, as well as college, university, and seminary students."--Jacket
Maranatha : women's funerary rituals and Christian origins by Kathleen E Corley( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kathleen Corley continues her examination of women's roles at the beginnings of Christianity with this groundbreaking new study of women's funerary rituals and lament customs in the ancient Roman world. She finds in these rituals important connections with Gospel accounts of women's visits to the tomb of Jesus and of his resurrection 'on the third day.' Examining texts, catacomb art, and inscriptions, she articulates a new and exciting role for women mourners at the heart of Christian origins."--Publisher's description
Women & the historical Jesus : feminist myths of Christian origins by Kathleen E Corley( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For decades scholars have argued that Jesus' teaching fostered inclusive communities and the full participation of women. Now Kathleen Corley challenges the assumption that Jesus himself fought patriarchal limitations on women. Rather her analysis of his authentic teaching suggests that, while Jesus critiques class and slave/free distinctions in his culture, his critique did not extend to unequal gender distinctions. The presence of women among his disciples, she says, is explained on the basis of the presence of women among many Greco-Roman religions and philosophical groups, including the Judaism of Jesus' own day."--Jacket
