Was Jesus married? The question has inspired fierce debate, conspiracy theories, sensationalist news stories and The Da Vinci Code. In this clear account of the evidence Anthony le Donne examines a range of ancient texts and modern scholarship to offer arguments for and against a married Jesus; he also considers how the changing nature of our quest for Jesus' wife illuminates the ebb and flow of modern social and cultural preoccupations.
