She is brought up by the Essenes for her parents died before she was a year old. There, she hides from the Romans, learning what the Essenes taught her in language and in arts. It turns out that she has a great talent for sculpture. And when a Roman named Marcus comes to investigate a murder in the Essenes village, Miriam creates a sculpture of him as a gift. It is because they have a great affection for each other. Unfortunately, Marcus is a pagan, which means that Miriam cannot marry him.
