THE WITNESS OF EARLY CHRISTIAN WOMEN
In a follow-up to the best-selling, "The Fathers of the Church", Mike Aquilina and Christopher Bailey have penned this inspiring companion book on heroic women of the early Church and their impact on history and the Faith. They demonstrate 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: consecrated virgins, heroic martyrs, and poor widows, but also worldly businesswomen, rich ladies and world adventurers! Paperback. 160 pages.
