Christian Women in the Patristic World
Lynn Cohick and Amy Brown Hughes
Lynn Cohick (Wheaton College) and Amy B. Hughes (Gordon College) show from literary and material evidence how women influenced the life of the Christian movement in antiquity. As martyrs and mothers, pilgrims and preachers, figures such as Perpetua, Thecla, Monica, and Macrina shaped the Christian theological imagination from the early centuries to the present.
