Review

"This is a welcome study in English of a widespread early
Church tradition, most of whose scholarship is in German.
This is a fascinating addition to our knowledge of the
Thelca cult...a valuable contribution."--Journal of Early

By Mary E. Robbins on March 16, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a well-documented study that extended my understanding of the early church. I have no background in this area, but found this particular title in a bibliography of a general study of Christian art. I was able to read the text without difficulty, but I appreciated the extensive footnotes that gave the text the background I needed. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the early church; I would especially recommend it to women. How exciting that this female follower of Paul (whose name is found in the New Testament) had such a dedicated following for hundreds of years!
