Who were the women of the early church? What was their role in the formation of the faith? Why do we know so little about them? Recorded on location in Rome, “Women in the Early Church” (2004), produced by the ELCA’s Mosaic Television brings a wealth of modern scholarship to your Lutheran congregation as it tells the story of women in the first three centuries of Christianity. You will learn about Mary Magdalene, Perpetua, Thecla, and Helena, the mother of Constantine.
The video is available on VHS and DVD and features scholars from Luther College, Wartburg Theological Seminary, Lutheran School of Theology at Philadelphia and Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago.
Use this video in your adult forum or women’s gathering as a great way to highlight the gifts and ministry of women in the church.
