Priscilla and Aquila are a married couple who had an active and important presence in the proclamation of the Gospel and in the birth of the first domestic churches in the beginning of the first Christian communities. The sources, the Acts of the Apostles and the writings of Paul, refer to Priscilla, united with her husband Aquila, but the emphasis is on the central role of this woman.
