Priscilla

Flourished circa C.E. 49, Rome and Greece

Priscilla, also called Prisca, was expelled from Rome with a group of Christians in the year C.E. 49 by pagan officials. She and her husband, Aquila, lived in Greece for a time but spent much of their lives traveling with Saint Paul, a founder of the Christian church, and spreading the teachings of Christianity. Thus Priscilla is one of the earliest teachers of Christian theology.
