  • clinical psychological and personality correlates of Asceticism in anorexia nervosa from saint anorexia to pathologic perfectionism
    Transcultural Psychiatry, 2006
    Co-Authors: Secondo Fassino, Andrea Piero, Carla Gramaglia, Giovanni Abbate Daga, M Gandione, Giovanni Giacomo Rovera, Goffredo Bartocci


    This study investigated the personality and clinical correlates of Asceticism in 154 anorectic patients. Multiple linear regression models showed that Asceticism was related to angry temperament, high control over anger, perfectionism, maturity fears, and number of vomiting episodes per week. These results suggest that the self-discipline and hypercontrol of anorectic patients are related to a temperament prone to angry feelings in subjects with a fear of becoming adult and with a trait of pathologic perfectionism.

  • Scripture and Asceticism
    The Oxford Handbook of Early Christian Biblical Interpretation, 2019
    Co-Authors: Elizabeth A Clark


    This chapter surveys some interpretative techniques employed by early Christian writers to encourage ascetic renunciation, especially renunciation of marriage and reproduction. These authors, gearing their messages to different audiences, sought to mine passages from both the Old Testament and the New to advance their cause. By use of different exegetical techniques (e.g. intertextual exegesis; appeal to ‘the difference in times’; ‘close reading’), they wrested ascetic meaning from often-recalcitrant scriptural passages. The chapter concludes with some examples of ascetic exegesis from Syrian authors.

  • contested bodies early christian Asceticism and nineteenth century polemics
    Journal of Early Christian Studies, 2009
    Co-Authors: Elizabeth A Clark


    This essay explores how two nineteenth-century writers who opposed the asceticizing aspects of the Oxford Movement and Roman Catholicism appealed to patristic writings. Anglican Isaac Taylor and Episcopalian Arthur Cleveland Coxe employed different rhetorical strategies: Taylor attempted to shock unsuspecting Christians about the “true” nature of Tractarian devotion to patristic Christianity, while Coxe, conversely, sought to explain away the Asceticism promoted by the Fathers and align early Christianity with nineteenth-century domesticity. Coxe, American editor of the Ante-Nicene Fathers series, advanced his cause by adding anti-Catholic footnotes and “elucidations” to the Fathers’ writings.
