Ancient Taboos and Gender Prejudice Challenges for Orthodox Women and the Church
Offering an understanding of the participation of women in the Orthodox Church, this book contributes to the ongoing debates and feminist analysis of women's participation, ministry and sexuality in the life and practice of the Church universal. The book reveals both the positive contributions to ecumenism and the difficulties confronting Orthodox women wishing to participate more fully in the leadership and ministry of their church.
