Abstract:

Award winning historian, author and broadcaster Bettany Hughes explores the complex attitudes towards women and religion, from 10,000 BC to the present day. If there was a golden age for women in religion, it certainly isn't the 21st century. The status of women in religion is currently a contentious subject, from the furore in the Anglican Church over women bishops to heated debates about the role of women in Islam. But it wasn't always this way – in the past women were often powerful players in the act of worship. From powerful Greek priestesses to rampaging Hindu goddesses; from machievellian Christian matriarchs to the women who shaped the early history of Islam, this series brings stories of the most inspiring female figures in the major world religions vividly to life.
