Women in the World of the Earliest Christians

Publisher's Description

Lynn Cohick provides an accurate and fulsome picture of the earliest Christian women by examining a wide variety of first century Jewish and Greco-Roman documents that illuminate their lives. She organizes the book around three major spheres of life: family, religious community, and society in general. Cohick shows that although women during this period were active at all levels within their religious communities, their influence was not always identified by leadership titles nor did their gender always determine their level of participation. The book corrects our understanding of early Christian women by offering an authentic and descriptive historical picture of their lives. Includes black and white illustrations from the ancient world.
