  •  Early Christian women (6+ / 0-)

    "Christianity was quite revolutionary in the way it treated its women, especially when you realise how sexist the ancient world was.


    It wasn't until the Roman Emperor Constantine's conversion to Christianity, in around 313 AD, the religion became institutionalised: male bishops were now government officials and women came to be seen as players in the background rather than public figures.

    I think it is pretty safe to concluded that Christianity as practiced in the 21st century is a far cry from the way it was practiced in 3rd and 4th centuries.
