Women and the Church

From Devil's Gateway to Discipleship
  • By Natalia Imperatori-Lee
Product Description

Women and the Church examines the history of Christian feminism as a response to patriarchy, the ways in which women have been portrayed in scripture and women's hermeneutical strategies, and the seminal contributions of women to the subfields of systematic theology. Unlike many books in this genre, which are collections of essays by diverse authors, Women and the Church is written from one author's perspective as an attempt to systematize the historic presence and absence of women in Roman Catholicism.


"Natalia Imperatori-Lee's new book, Women and the Church: From Devil's Gateway to Discipleship, is sure to become an instant classic in the field. It is theologically rigorous, with detailed analysis of women's roles and voices in the church throughout the centuries, and pastorally sensitive, with attention to issues of intersectionality. It also provides thoughtful study questions and valuable resources for further research. This book will enliven one to teach and study feminist theology again."
--Michelle Saracino, Manhattan College
