Product Description

In this study, Anne Jensen provides an exhaustive account of the many roles that women played in the early church and their subsequent marginalization by the later church. This book is required reading for anyone interested in the history of the church and its impact on the lives of women throughout the ages. To what extent has Christianity promoted the liberation of the woman and to what extent hindered it? In the textbooks and handbooks of traditional study the early church is usually treated as if the first Christian women and men lived in isolation.
