CTS 162 Feminism and Mysticism

from 600.00

Feminist theology, and feminism more generally, has as its central concern “women’s full flourishing.” The aim of this course is to ask, and attempt to answer, the following questions. Is Christianity conducive to the full flourishing of women? Have its traditional interpretation and practice been attuned to women’s ontology and distinctive sensibilities? What have been the role and significance of women’s mystical experience within theology as well as philosophy and personal understanding? What are the marks of contemporary feminist theological thinking? To address these questions we will read excerpts from medieval Christian women mystics as well as from contemporary feminist thinkers.
