Product Description

Meet the heroines of Christianity's formative years!

The Witness of Early Christian Women demonstrates the radical nature of Christianity's understanding of women and their roles, especially in a pagan society that viewed them as little more than property. The variety of women here is striking: poor widows, consecrated virgins, heroic martyrs, but also businesswomen, the wealthy, and an indomitable traveler on a world tour.

Each chapter features a concise biography accompanied by writings from the early Church about the woman in question. The Mothers of the Church include:

  • Holy Women of the New Testament
  • St. Blandina
  • St. Perpetua and St. Felicity
  • St. Helena
  • St. Thecla
  • St. Agnes of Rome
  • St. Macrina
  • Proba the Widow
  • St. Marcella
  • St. Paula
  • St. Eustochium
