THEO 5481 Women and the Church (Spring: 3 )
The religious and social experience of women from a variety of cultures, including the experience of class participants, form the basis of this seminar. We will 1) study the historical roots of Christian feminist theology; 2) explore the critiques and alternative reconstructions of traditional understandings of the Bible, God, human beings and their relationship to the world that have been offered by Christian feminist theologians writing from a variety of ideological perspectives; and 3) investigate the ways in which women have defined themselves in relationship to the church, particularly in terms of spirituality and ministry.
