Judith is not as well known as Ruth and Esther, mostly because her story—about a courageous widow who strikes a decisive blow that defeats her people’s enemy—is not part of the Protestant canon. However, her heroism is well told in the Apocrypha and was known to Early Church writers. Because she is brave, decisive, and assertive, she has long been a subject of fascination for playwrights and painters.
We conclude our Her Story series with the profile of this unforgettable figure. Join us in the Parlor at 7:30p this Thursday.
