Later, by emphasizing virginity and martyrdom, Christianity gave women their first viable option to marriage. In their relationship with God, women like Hildegard of Bingen, and Joan of Arc also found an opportunity for significant creative activity. Even so, church leaders succeeded in keeping women in the role of victim, a role to which Christianity added religious significance. Is it possible to develop a truly feminist theology in a religion that depends upon the symbolism of sacrifice?" "This translation of the Italian work Storia laica delle donne religiose examines such topics as sexuality, virginity, martyrdom, mysticism, and women's involvement in education and aid societies. The author then considers whether the role of sacrificial victim is necessary to society, and the possible implications if the role is universally rejected."--BOOK JACKET." ;
