More on Women in the Bible

Paul T:
You mentioned earlier that Paul's exclusion of women in the church was a generally reference to temple priestesses and false idols. Would you be so kind as to provide that specific reference? Elsewhere I note that Paul specifically "desires" to exclude women from "every place that men should pray." (1 Timothy 8-12)

But the Bible is a big place, and it should be obvious that I haven't read the whole thing!

Thank you in advance,
Christine

Sweet the coming on
Of grateful evening mild; then silent night
With this her solemn bird and this fair moon,
And these the gems of heaven, her starry train.
--John Milton
