About-

A compilation of essays on the role of women in the institutional and ordained leadership of Western religion. The authors discuss religious women as charismatic leaders, holy women, martyrs, dissenters, renewers and reformers, as well as theological images of the feminine - in God, the Christ-Church relationship, and the self. The studies are historical and descriptive both, from the early church to the present day.
