Product Description

From martyr (Perpetua) and ascetic (Macrina) to empress (Eudocia), Christian women played a pivotal role in the early church. This volume is nearly a complete compendium of all of the extant evidence from the second through fifth centuries outlining female contributions to the social and theological life of the church. By telling the stories of Christian women in the patristic period, Lynn Cohick and Amy Hughes provide readers with a fuller view of Christian history and inspire us to engage in our own communities with a stronger appreciation for the Christian women of this time period.

Publisher's Description

A Top Ten Book for Parish Ministry in 2017, Academy of Parish Clergy

A
Jesus Creed 2017 Book of the Year (Honorable Mention)

From facing wild beasts in the arena to governing the Roman Empire, Christian women--as preachers and philosophers, martyrs and empresses, virgins and mothers--influenced the shape of the church in its formative centuries. This book provides in a single volume a nearly complete compendium of extant evidence about Christian women in the second through fifth centuries. It highlights the social and theological contributions they made to shaping early Christian beliefs and practices, integrating their influence into the history of the patristic church and showing how their achievements can be edifying for contemporary Christians.
