New Catholic Feminism by Tina Beattie

Book Description

It is hard to over-estimate the challenge that feminism poses to Roman Catholicism. Pope John Paul II's call for a 'new feminism' has led to the development of a Catholic theological response to the so-called 'old feminism'. The New Catholic Feminism sets up a dramatic encounter between the orthodox Catholic establishment and contemporary critical theory, including feminist theology and philosophy, queer theory, and French psycholinguistics, in order to explore fundamental questions about human identity, personhood and gender. From the naked bodies of Eden to the 'gay nuptials' of liturgy, it argues that the strange and volatile world of Catholic sexual symbolism cannot be 'tamed' to meet the ideological agendas of either feminist theology or conservative Catholicism. Only through a radical re-evaluation of the sacramental significance of the sexed human body might the Catholic Church provide a redemptive response to the sexual politics of contemporary society.

Theology After Postmodernity by Tina Beattie Theology After Postmodernity, Hardback (October 2013)

Engaging the theology of Thomas Aquinas with the psychoanalytic theory of Jacques Lacan, Tina Beattie shows how Thomism exerted a formative influence on Lacan, and how a Lacanian approach can bring new insights to Thomas's theology. Lacan makes possible a renewed Thomism which offers a rich theology of creation, incarnation, and redemption.

New Atheists by Tina Beattie New Atheists, Paperback (October 2007)

From its gradual decline during the latter part of the 20th century, religion has been catapulted back into public consciousness, not least by acts of violence, extremism and various forms of fundamentalism. This book calls for a reasoned dialogue between believers and non-believers about questions which impinge deeply on all our lives.

Mary by Tina Beattie Mary, Hardback (June 2007)

To understand the cult of the Virgin Mary is to understand the Christian relgion. The Virgin Mary is a ubiquitous but enigmatic presence in Christian history and culture. This book provides essays which give overviews of particular areas of study - both historical and thematic - together with texts from primary sources and scholarly articles.
