About This Quiz

How familiar are you with the women of the Bible? Do you think you could name them all? Take this How Stuff Works quiz to find out just how much you remember about these influential women.

Sure, you know all about Eve, the first woman ever, but did you know that she really may not have been the first woman? According to some religious historians, Adam actually had another companion before Eve. 

Although this claim is not part of the Book of Genesis or the Torah, some claim that Lilith was actually Adam's first companion. She was made of the same dirt as Adam and was to serve as his companion, but she left the Garden of Eden because she was not happy with a position of subservience. 

Although Lilith does appear in some writings, she is typically not looked upon favorably by practitioners of Judaism or Christianity. Whether or not you believe the legend of Lilith, and whether or not you look upon her part positively in the history of religion, she might just appear in this quiz along with a total of 35 iconic women of the Bible.

Do you think you can identify all 35 of these women of the Bible? Let's find out.
