In this conversation, Dr. Sandra Glahn, Dr. Lynn Cohick, and Dr. Amy Brown Hughes discuss the stories of strong women in the early church, focusing on Helena, the mother of Constantine. They share their experiences of discovering lesser-known women in church history, such as the sisters Praxides and Pudenziana. The conversation explores Helena's role in Christianizing the Roman Empire and her pilgrimage to Jerusalem, where she oversaw the construction of significant Christian sites. They also emphasize the importance of physicality in Christianity and the dignity of the human body while reflecting on the legacy of these strong women and their impact on the church.

Key Takeaways: 
  • The stories of strong women in the early church, such as Helena, the mother of Constantine, are often overlooked but have a significant impact.
  • Helena played a crucial role in Christianizing the Roman Empire and oversaw the construction of important Christian sites in Jerusalem.
  • The early church had a deep respect for physicality and the dignity of the human body, which is often overlooked in modern interpretations of Christianity.

Visual Museum of Women in Christianity

The purpose of this collaborative project is to create a curated, permanent visual exhibit of women in the history, ministry, and piety of early, Byzantine, and medieval Christianity that will be available online for researchers, educators, and interested laypersons.

The goal of this multi-year project is to make the visual record of women in ministry and leadership available free of charge and unencumbered by permission requirements, and to include short teaching elements to guide the audience through the constitutive and pivotal role of women throughout Christian history.

Together with the visual story, the accompanying narrative will make it possible for patrons to learn about women throughout history and across the globe and their unique contributions to the life and faith of the church…

A history that remains mostly untold.
