The Reformation was led by men like Luther; Calvin and Zwingli who revolutionised their world and ours. But there were also many remarkable women who defied social biases and traditions with a dauntless commitment to God’s Word. These are the true stories of eight of these women: follow Katharina von Bora as she escapes from a convent to start a revolutionary new life; flee Paris with Charlotte Duplessis de Mornay; who wrote an eyewitness account of the gruesome St Bartholomew’s Day massacre; and learn about the new faith with Queen Katherine Parr; the only one of Henry VIII’s wives to survive him. These women were heads of state; writers; activists; poets and scholars but they were also very human; with their own loves; fears; heartbreaks and temptations. When we are called to stand for our faith; we can be inspired by their legacy.
