A History of Women and Ordination: The Priestly Office of Women: God's Gift to a Renewed Church
During the past half century, few issues have been more prominent and disputed in religious circles than the ordination of women. This has been most acutely felt in the Roman Catholic, Orthodox and Anglican Churches, but other Christian and Jewish have also been immersed in the debate. For decades, Professor Ida Raming has been one of the leaders in the forefront of the argument in favor of the ordination of women. First published by Scarecrow Press in 1976, Dr. Raming has recently republished her classic German study accompanied by an invaluable updated international bibliography as well as three recent articles that provide scholarly responses to the Vatican's position. This second edition provides an English translation of the new updated German edition. Also provided is an English translation of all the canonical sources quoted by Raming and a chronological bibliography on women's ordination from 1973 to the present. Any scholar interested in this volatile and intriguing question will welcome this scholarly resource.
