Christ Child

Cultural Memories of a Young Jesus

Stephen J Davis

Using insights from the sociological study of human memory, and particularly the concept of physical and practical 'sites of memory', Davis explores how ancient Christians recollected Jesus' childhood and how early Christian history was created. Central to the study is the collection of stories known as the Infancy Gospel of Thomas, or the Paidika ('Childhood Deeds'), which begins with Jesus at the age of five and includes tales of miracles, cursing and his classroom encounters with the teacher Zacchaeus.
