MEDIA REVIEWS

"Dedicated to 'unruly women everywhere,' this collection of essays is as provacative as it is academic. Who would expect a collection of scholarly writings about Catholicism to include chapters titled, 'I Grab the Microphone and Move My Body' and 'Dis-robing the Priest'? But my favorite essay cites correlation in the work of sister Helen Prejean (of Dead Man Walking fame) and that of voodoo priestess Marie Laveau. Who knew?" - John Lewis, Balitmore Magazine

"This is a sophisticated, varied, and provocative collection that captures the current debates about the Catholic Church and women - whether misogynist and oppressive or ultimately liberatory - and applies that range of positions to a wonderful range of writings by Catholic women writers from many traditions - Renaissance English and Spanish, United States, Canadian, French, Native American, Caribbean, and Mexican-American. It will be a welcome addition to the field." - Jane L. Donawerth, University of Maryland Distinguished Scholar-Teacher; Co-editor of the journal, Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal
