St Paul and the Women of Romans16

Historically then, credit for the success achieved by the primitive church does not belong only to the sons of Adam. The daughters of Eve have a rightful claim to an equal share of recognition.

St. Paul's tribute to women in Romans 16 makes us wish we knew more about our apostle-foremothers. But what little we do know constitutes a precious legacy for Orthodox Eve.
