CAROL CHRIST
Finding Meaning in Feminist Spirituality

All will be welcome on:

Saturday March 10th - Sunday March 11th 2001
10.00 a.m. - 4.00 p.m.
Cloisters Room,
University College Chichester


Carol Christ is a founder of and leading spokesperson for the growing
women's spirituality movement. Carol Christ's first book, Diving Deep and
Surfacing was groundbreaking in its exploration of women's writing as
spiritual quest. Her well-known article Why Women Need the Goddess has been
acknowledged as foundational in the development of feminist approaches to
the study and practice of religion. With the Jewish feminist theologian
Judith Plaskow, Carol Christ has edited two anthologies of feminist
religion: Womanspirit Rising and Weaving the Visions. These have both become
central texts for feminist studies of religion.

Carol Christ's latest book, Rebirth of the Goddess, is the first attempt to
present a systematic thealogy - reflections on the Sacred as Female.

This is Carol Christ's first major visit to England. She will be surveying
the thealogical, ethical and spiritual implications of her work and
providing opportunities for discussion. She will also be presenting a new
paper written especially for this conference which explores her latest
research.

scholarship in feminist theology and thealogy.
