Front Cover
Columbia University Press, 2000 - Religion - 313 pages
Supported by interviews with women in the Episcopal priesthood, this text draws upon object-relations theory, Freudian concepts of the unconscious, and French feminist thought to show how the celebration of mass by women priests would require a rethinking of core dimensions of Catholic theology.
