By Kari Elisabeth Børresen

During this choice of articles, Kari Elisabeth Børresen and Kari Vogt indicate the convergence of androcentric gender versions within the Christian and Islamic traditions. they supply huge surveys of modern study in women's reviews, with bio-socio-cultural genderedness as their major analytical classification. Matristic writers from overdue Antiquity, the center a while and the Renaissance are analysed when it comes to a feminine God language, reshaping conventional theology. The persisting androcentrism of 20th-century Christianity and Islam, as displayed in institutional records selling women's particular capabilities, is severely uncovered. This quantity offers a pioneering research of correlated Christian and Islamic gender versions which has hitherto remained uncompared through women's experiences in faith.
This paintings will serve students and scholars within the humanistic disciplines of theology, non secular experiences, Islamic stories, heritage of principles, Medieval philosophy and women's heritage.

Example text

Jane Tibbetts Schulenburg has described the androcentric selection of female sainthood from 500 to 1200, with an average at ca. 15%, these mainly royal or aristocratic foundresses of monasteries and abbesses [466]. In another article on female sanctity in the early Middle Ages, Schulenburg shows that from the 9th century onwards women's declining political power is followed by a decreasing number of female saints [468]. Schulenburg also provides a vivid account of heroic selfmutilation, like cutting off the nose, practised by Frankish and Anglo-Saxon virgins and nuns to escape enforced marriage or Viking rape [467].

In 1325 the Beguine Prous Boneta told the inquisition in Carcassone that she had been elected as dispenser of the Holy Spirit to humankind. Prousl confession, a Latin report of her vernacular, is edited by William Harold May [321]. Later condemned as an heretic and probably burned at the stake, Prous' doctrinal content is presented as considerably confused. She seems to understand herself a parallel to Mary giving birth to Christ, that is as a female instrument for the salvific coming of the Spirit.

He notes that the shift from shortage to surplus of marriageable women was disadvantageous to them. In the early medieval period, the groom provided the costs of establishing a new family, later a considerable dowry was offered with the bride. Scarcity of eligible males made fathers marry their daughters off below their own social rank. The normal age difference between spouses increased the number of widows, with few prospects of remarriage. Herlihy also presents an overview of women and work in medieval Europe, showing that increasing guild restric- 40 Karl Elisabeth Burresen tions limited female productive functions [238].
