Gender and the Role of Women in Our Liturgical Life
FutureChurch is joined by Yale Divinity School Professor Teresa Berger, Ph.D. who has spent a lifetime examining both past and present liturgical developments from the perspective of women’s lives. In her presentation, Dr. Berger offer insights into the roles women played in Early Christianity, the history of women’s liturgical ministries, and the development of the calendar of saints and the uneven ways we have come to formally venerate women within the tradition.
Teresa Berger, Ph.D. is Professor of Liturgical Studies and Thomas E. Golden Jr. Professor of Catholic Theology at Yale Divinity School and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music.
