Description: This fascinating video examines the story of a woman who took things into her own hands--including the head of a brutal warrior chief. Dr. Lisa Wolfe takes you on a tour of the Book of Judith, posing provocative questions alont the way. Judith, from the Koine greek version of the Hebrew Old testament, reads like a historical novel rife with warfare, lust, espionage, and intrigue. Told in six sessions which take you from a mythological battlefield and a besieged city into the studio and psyche of the Baroque painter Artemesia Gentileschi, Dr. Wolfes' style is a refresing balance of careful scholarship and a genuine love for the story of this amazing woman.

Chapters include:
The Real King Antiochus
Judith's Plan
An Unlikely Hero
Piety and Violence
The Art of Artemesia
