Gender and the Divine: learning from feminist religion

Start Date
6th September 2019 6:15 pm
End Date

Course Details

Judaism and Christianity both have strong traditions of using gendered language to describe God. This has often been masculine but, both historically and recently, there are also feminine examples. In this course we will explore ways in which feminist Christians and Jews have re-read Biblical texts, re-worked their traditions, and found resources to describe a Divine who is masculine, feminine, both, and neither.  We will also take time to consider how this affects our own relationships with God.

Rhiannon Grant is a life-long Quaker who researches and writes about religious language and practices in a variety of contexts.
