Apart from a few women such as Eve, Mary (the mother of Jesus) and Mary Magdalene, the women of the Bible are generally eclipsed by their more famous male counterparts. This state of affairs not only mirrors the general standing of women in Western society over the past two thousand years, it also reflects the patriarchal nature of both the Jewish and Christian religions.
From Abi to Zipporah, Women in the Bible retells the stories of the women, both great and humble, who people the pages of te Old and New Testaments as well as the extra-biblical books known as the Apocrypha. These are stories of true love, devotion and piety, incest, lust, prostitution, adultery, polygamy, necromancy, decapitation, treachery and violence.
With illustrations from many of painting's great masters.
