Hi everyone, This is a brand new page and I'm still working on it. I will upload more topics and citations shortly. Thanks!

Christian women[edit]

The statement "Christian women tended to avoid cosmetics with the belief that they should praise what God gave them." is unsupported by the cited reference. Whether Tertullian said something or not does not provide evidence of what the Roman era Christian women in question actually did. In fact, it sounds to me like Tertullian is trying to convince women to stop using cosmetics, and that suggests that they did use them. In any case, the fact remains that we have no demographics on this point at all. Whogue (talk) 11:49, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
