2. Feminist Theology and God
About this Lecture
In this module, we consider feminist theology and its relationship to the doctrine of God, focusing in particular on (i) feminist theology as a call for justice (ii) evidence for binary attitudes towards men and women in the history of western thought (iii) three stances of feminist theology: rejection, change, and critical abidance (iv) problems with the doctrine of God for feminist thinkers (v) feminist process theology and eco-feminist theology (vi) the possibility of being a feminist theologian and remaining within the Christian tradition.
In this course, Dr Ruth Jackson Ravenscroft (University of Cambridge) explores gender and theology. In the first module we introduce the relationship between gender, feminism, and theology. In the second module, we consider feminist theology in relation to the doctrine of God. In the third module we examine Rosemary Radford Ruether’s feminist theology, before turning to Mary Daly’s theology in the fourth module. In the fifth module we compare and contextualise the feminist theologies of Ruether and Daly. In the sixth and final module, we examine feminist theological engagement with scripture.
