Summary
What if the idea that 'you are what you eat' weren't a simple metaphor? What if it revealed a deeper medical, moral, and religious history about the relationship between food and the soul? In the early Roman Empire, food (and especially breast milk) was invested with the power to transfer characteristics, improve intellect, and establish bonds of kinship. Ancient Jews and Christians participated in this discourse surrounding the symbolic power of food and feeding. This work explores the legacy and complex history of food, feeding, and the formation of ancient religious cultures
