Band of Angels

In her new book Band of Angels: The Forgotten World of Early Christian Women, ancient historian Kate Cooper considers how modern theories of lived religion, the power of networks, and viral sharing can shed light on the nature and purpose of early Christian story-telling - and on what we know about the 'hidden people' of the ancient world. Kate was interviewed a roundtable discussion at TORCH entitled 'Historians, invisible women and the world of stories’ with Dr Bettany Hughes (Historian and TV presenter), Dr Selina Todd (Modern British History) and Prof Tim Whitmarsh (Classics) to celebrate the publication of the book.
