The introduction begins with a striking example of a “gendered palimpsest”: the variant readings in 1 Clement that differ by giving women a voice or silencing them. The remainder of the chapter treats the multiple intersections of books and bodies in early Christianity. Finally, the chapter outlines the general contents of the book.
