Description - Women in Religion by Holm
The place of women in the religions, both as expressed in the classical writings and as experienced in life, is carefully considered in this book. It deals with what part women can and/or do play in religious institutions; how relevant religion is to their general role in society; and the significance of cultural influences for attitudes to women within the religious traditions.Addressing important issues of the day, this series examines how each of the eight major religions approaches a particular theme. Constructed to be comparative, the books are both authoritative and accessible. Each chapter is followed by a selected bibliography. This book is ideal for undergraduate students.
