Description The musivarian technique, as a decorative and narrative mechanism, was used since Antiquity and Christianity drew extensively on it in order to develop its own propaganda iconographic cycles, transferring it to walls and ceilings, narrating in a thousand different ways the christian essage in temples and palaces, seizing Roman aesthetic resources and narratives, in such a way that the mosaic greatly surpassed painting between the 4th and 8th centuries. The main object of this article is to analyze the women portrayed or clients in ravenan mosaics between the 5th and 7th centuries, whether they were holy, noble, plebeian, sinful or virtuous.  
La técnica musivaria como mecanismo decorativo y narrativo era usada desde la Antigüedad y el Cristianismo abrevó ampliamente en ella con la finalidad de desarrollar ciclos iconográficos propios de propaganda, trasladándola a muros y techos, narrando de mil maneras diversas el mensaje cristiano en templos y palacios, apoderándose de recursos estéticos y narrativos romanos, de manera tal que el mosaico superó largamente a la pintura entre los siglos IV y VIII. El principal objetivo de este artículo es analizar a las mujeres retratadas o comitentes en mosaicos raveneses entre los siglos V y VII, fuesen santas, nobles, plebeyas, pecadoras o virtuosas.
