Evil Children in Religion, Literature and Art

Full Product Description

This text explores the genesis, development, and religious significance of a literary and iconographic motif, involving a gang of urchins, usually male, who mock or assault a holy or eccentric person, typically an adult. Originating in the biblical tale of Elisha's mockery (2 Kings 2.23-24), this motif recurs in literature, hagiography, and art, from antiquity up to our own time, strikingly defying the conventional Judeo Christian and Romantic image of the child as a symbol of innocence.

Evil Children in Religion, Literature and Art by Eric J. Ziolkowski was published by Palgrave Macmillan in May 2001. The ISBN for Evil Children in Religion, Literature and Art is 9780333918951.
