Summary/Abstract: Synoptic, John´s and Paul´s tradition shows the New Testament´s picture of a woman. The Old and New Testament also show a view on women, who had significant function and influence on shaping the history related to a better and more dignified status of a woman in society. The truth is that women play an important role in every gospel. Jesus chose women to be sacrificed, to engage in helping others, pray and educate people in faith and lead others to him by example. Such women left and will leave an important mark in the Catholic Church. The New Testament is a “liberation” for a woman and that by Jesus´ radical approach, which also brought a new view on a woman and her dignity.
