Description

How did women in the Roman Empire negotiate their daily lives, their work, their religion? Moving beyond simple stereotypes, Lynn Cohick explores the complex social world wherein women influenced their culture, shaped society, and worshiped God. From the Emperor's wife and her patronage, to the slave woman's religious devotion, Dr. Cohick draws a colorful picture of women in the ancient world.
