Product Description

"These ten essays by distinguished scholars consider the gendering of the 'image of God' from the book of Genesis to the Protestant Reformation and beyond. How, the essays ask, was the notion of the 'image of God' construed in religious and theological discussions in the formative eras of Christian history? If humans of both sexes are 'God-like,' why has the church, much of Christian theology, and the wider social order been so reluctant to grant women equality and to use female as well as male metaphors for God? Informative and engaging, these essays will be of value to both scholars of Christian history and theology and laypeople seeking to investigate the meaning of the Christian past for contemporary church life"- Elizabeth A. Clark Kari Elisabeth Borresen is Research Professor Royal Norwegian Ministry of Culture, and Professor in Medieval Studies, Department of Cultural Studies, Oslo University, Norway.
