Notes

Abstract: This thesis compares exemplar Greek heroines in epic and Greek drama with early Christian women saints' lives from the 2nd to the 5th centuries CE. It deals specifically with three types of women: virgins, wives, and widows. Comparing each woman in terms of the common themes among their stories, the thesis examines the similarities and differences between these ideal women in antiquity. While Greek heroines acted in the best interests of their families and households, the Christian saints devoted themselves to God. This contrast between household values and the religious devotion is what differentiates the behavior of an exemplary Greek heroine from a Christian woman saint. All in all, however, the personality traits of these women are often the same: they are all intelligent, beautiful and determined women who devote themselves wholeheartedly to the highest cause of their respective societies.
