Sobre l'autor

American feminist theologian Rosemary Radford Ruether was born in St. Paul, Minnesota. Ruether graduated from Scripps College in 1958 and received her doctorate in classics and patristics from Claremont Graduate School in 1956. In 1976 she became Georgia Harkness Professor of Theology at mostra'n més Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, a position she continues to hold. An activist in the civil rights and peace movements of the 1960s, Ruether turned her energies to the emerging women's movement. During the 1970s and successive decades, feminist concerns impelled her to rethink historical theology, analyzing the patriarchal biases in both Christianity and Judaism that elevated male gender at the expense of women. Her rigorous scholarship has challenged many of the assumptions of traditionally male-dominated Christian theology. Recognized as one of the most prolific and readable Catholic writers, Ruether's work represents a significant contribution to contemporary theology, and her views have influenced a generation of scholars and theologians. Her imprint on feminist theology has been reinforced by her lectureships at a number of universities in the United States and abroad. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

Wonderful work, just great, clear and learned writing. I think this is the most readable, and thus memorable, among the books on liberation theology that I've read. I am halfway through it, I like the chapters about Christian anti-Semitism, the one about celibacy and sexuality, the one about Christian apocalypticism, and how it contrasts with the intellectual and social ferment among young people during the late 60s. In short, I like most of what I've read. The chapter on Christian anti-Semitism is especially interesting because it focuses on the plight of the Jew, it is written from the perspective of the Jew who had to contend during the modern period with the anti-Semitism that existing socialist projects inherited from centuries of Christian anti-Semitism. It is not 'philo-Semitic' though as it is critical of the Zionist project in Israel. The comparison between Christian religio-political intolerance during the early period of its adoption by the Roman Empire and the more democratic methods of Jewish religious life and organization is also illuminating.

Liberation theology is my kind of theology. It is the kind of engaged religious thinking that makes me still view religions as being not that bad sometimes. Ruether's work is important, not just in terms of intellectual religious history and Biblical studies, but also as a part of a curriculum in social ethics and progressive politics.

These essays attempt to fill a growing need for a more exact idea of the role of religion, specifically in the Judaeo-Christian tradition, in shaping the traditional cultural images that have degraded and suppressed women.
StFrancisofAssisi | Sep 6, 2021 |
a tour de force of christian theology (and the sexism it contains) from its jewish origins to karl barth. not only does ruether diagnose the oppressive qualities of christianity astutely, but she also recommends theological and pastoral changes that the church needs to make in order to reconnect woman with her authentic self (and to understand the authentic nature of god).
