This extensive study of Mary Magdalene and the "many other women" mentioned in the Gospels sheds light on how Jesus treated women. Ricci is surprised that so much that is known about these women is ignored by scholars who choose to turn the focus away from these loyal followers of Jesus.

Italian philosopher and researcher Carla Ricci addresses an overlooked but significant presence in the Gospels--that of the women who followed Jesus. Citing Luke 8:1-3, Ricci describes a group of women who unswervingly followed Jesus from Galilee to Jerusalem, through his passion and death, to become messengers of the resurrection.
