100 years, the popes have spoken about women on more than 40 occasions. This book is the first study, in any language, of that teaching. From speeches to encyclicals, Richard Leonard takes the reader through 27 of the most important papal documents concerning women, including Pope John Paul's most recent statements, Mulieris dignitatem and Ordinatio sacerdotalis. Writing in an easy and accessible style, Leonard shows how the popes have had very different things to say about women, depending on whether they were issuing Catholic social teaching or reflecting on the role of Mary. Leonard exmaines why recent teaching about women has met with scepticism and hostility from women and men inside and outside the Catholic Church. He demonstrates why there is such an outstanding contrast in approach to Christian womanhood taken by the papal teaching office and that of leading Catholic feminist theologian, Elizabeth Schussler Fiorenza. This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand what the popes have actually said about women and why they say what they do

MEDIA REVIEWS

This book traces the development of papal teaching up to its current promise and ambiguity ... Papal teaching now affirms the equality of women and men by nature in creation and grace in Christ. In so doing it departs from centuries of theological tradition. At the same time it asserts an existential difference between women and men that mandates separate social roles and thereby inequality in practice.
