Jane F. Gardner shows us an ever changing Eternal City, as lawyers and senators deal with everything from marriage to divorce to who got what property when and how it was going to be paid. The overall picture shows women slowly gaining more rights as time went on. No, they weren't equal before the law (women couldn't testify in court, for example), but things were better at the end then back in the dim, dark past. Ms Gardner is a wonderful writer. She's organized her topics very well, and she's always open to the humor of some of the situations. She does use a lot of Latin.

She looks with particular attention at the ways in which the strict letter of the law came to be modified, softened, circumvented, and even changed, pointing out that the laws themselves tell us as much about the economic situation of women and the range of opportunities available to them outside the home.

Excellent. A MUST READ for all Christian women who have the sense to know that something in the current church world is inaccurate, and, leaves much to be desired. This book will answer the questions that, smart women have the common sense to ask.

What a treasure trove of information. If you think that Roman women just sat around, weaving and wondering when their men would come home, think again. Jane F.

She does use a lot of Latin terms (obviously) and I did wished she had included a glossary in the back.
This one is going on my Roman history shelf. I know I'll be loaning it out and reading it again.
