About this product
- Description'Ritual Making Women' looks at the way in which women's making of ritual has emerged from the rapidly developing field of women's spirituality and theology. The author uses ethgraphic material to explore how the construction of ritual uses story-making and embodied action to empower women. Ritual, far from being a timeless and universal practice, is shown to be a contextual and gendered performance in which women subvert conventional distinctions of private and public. The book combines narrative and case study material and draws on feminist theology and theory, social anthropology and gender studies.
- Author BiographyJan Berry is a tutor in Practical Theology at Luther King House, Manchester, where she teaches pastoral studies, liturgy and worship, and feminist theology and spirituality on an MA and undergraduate programme in contextual theology.
