Product Description

Women and Religion in the First Christian Centuries focuses on religion during the period of Roman imperial rule and its significance in women's lives. It discusses the rich variety of religious expression, from pagan cults and classical mythology to ancient Judaism and early Christianity, and the wide array of religious functions fulfilled by women. The author analyses key examples from each context, creating a vivid image of this crucial period which laid the foundations of western civilization.

Deborah Sawyer is a Lecturer at the Department of Religious Studies at Lancaster University, where she directs a Masters programme in Women and Religion. Her previous publications include Midrash Aleph Beth and A Walk in the Garden: Biblical, Iconographical and Literary Images of Eden.
