Vital to the current debate about women and the Church, this book discloses that women played prominent leadership roles in Jesus' own ministry and in the early Church - as prophets, heads of churches and teachers. It explains why women were marginalized and scapegoated as the Church successfully emerged as a public institution and what the reasons were for women's subordination in Christianity.
