The Feminine Genius of Catholic Theology

The Feminine Genius of Catholic Theology
Not available
This book
introduces Catholic doctrine through the crucible of the women mystics'
reception of the gospel.The work of the
great women theologians of the Church's second millennium has too often been
neglected (or relegated to the category of 'mysticism') in textbooks on
Catholic doctrine.This is a shame,
because their work shows the interior conjunction of liturgical experience
(broadly understood), scriptural exegesis, philosophical reflection, and
doctrinal/creedal formulation.Drawing
on their work, this book presents the tenets of Catholic faith in a clear and
accessible manner, useful for introductory courses as well as for students and
scholars interested in the contributions of women to Catholic theology. Women theologians in this book include Catherine of Siena, Theresa of Avila, Therese of Lisieux, Simone Weil and others.
