Learn more about women and Christianity with Christian Supplies

Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.” – Luke 7.50

Women have played an essential role in the history of Christianity. The first visual images of Jesus’s Resurrection were of women finding the tomb empty (Mark 16. 1–8; cf. Matthew 28. 1–10; Luke 24. 1–12. The women who anointed Jesus’s body with spices, instead encounter a young man (Mark) or ‘angel’ (Matthew/Luke) who informs them that Jesus has indeed risen.

You can learn more about how Christianity is essential for women and their roles within it via the significant selection of Christian books, specifically for women, in the Christian Supplies collection.

The significance of women in the Christian faith

A particularly iconic female figure in Christianity is Jesus’s mother, the Virgin Mary. A pivotal moment from Mary's life frequently represented and discussed is the Annunciation (Luke 1. 26–38), in which the Angel Gabriel announces that Mary has been chosen to give birth to the child Jesus.
