From the women of the scripture to Catholic Women Speak, women have consistently changed church practice, communities, and ideas. This eight lecture series, including this year’s Mary Ward lecture, will explore inspirational women whose lives and actions have been transformational within the Church. By focusing on women in the historical and contemporary church, the course is designed to open discussion spaces to celebrate, uncover, and critique the contributions of women to and through Church history.
Speakers include: Prof Shannen Dee Williams of Villanova University (Mary Ward Lecture 2022), Prof Jeana Del Rosso of Notre Dame of Maryland University, Dr Sue Price, Dr Phyllis Zagano, Prof Charlotte Methuen, Pavlína Kašparová, and Dr Carmen M. Mangion of the University of London among others.
Course Leaders: Dr Louise Nelstrop and Dr Férdia Stone Davis
