Women in Christianity
Knowledge-Values Courses: Christian Tradition
This course examines in historical terms the tension between the significant religious opportunities available to women in the Christian tradition, and the subordination of women in Christian institutions. This examination begins with women in the scriptures, traces women’s roles in European Christianity through the Reformation, and then focuses on Christian women in America to gain understanding of women’s roles in contemporary American society and in American Christian churches.
This course replaces RELS U343.
