  1. Redeeming Beauty? Christa and the Displacement of Women’s Bodies in Theological Aesthetic Discourses.Elisabeth Vasko - 2013 - Feminist Theology 21 (2):195-208.
    This article adopts Edwina Sandys’ Christa as a hermeneutical lens through which to expose new dimensions about the interplay between aesthetics and redemption in the Christian tradition. Contemporary theological aesthetic discourses have ignored ugliness and its causes, especially the patriarchal ways in which Christian tradition has been used to sanctify violence against women. The issue of gender injustice takes on a heightened significance in light of recent claims surrounding the beauty of the cross. As a subversive aesthetic feminist representation, Christa (...)

  • `Presiding Like a Woman': Feminist Gestures for Christian Assembly.Stephen Burns - 2009 - Feminist Theology 18 (1):29-49.
    Feminist engagement with liturgy has produced an abundance of new texts. This essay seeks to complement the production of feminist texts for prayer by considering ways in which feminist liturgy might more intentionally reflect on practices which mediate feminist liturgical principles— and especially the congruence of non-verbal aspects of liturgy with texts for and about feminist liturgy. The essay juxtaposes literature in feminist liturgy with literature in wider circles of liturgical theology. It draws a number of clues from the work (...)

  • ‘Evoking the Other’: Towards Feminist Gesture for Any Assembly.Bryan Cones - 2020 - Feminist Theology 28 (2):198-215.
    While some church bodies and denominations have taken steps towards language for the divine and human informed by feminist theological reflection and practice, the embodiment of common prayer across traditions is little changed. Feminist liturgical reflection and practice, however, offer patterns of movement and gesture, voice, and leadership that are no less critical to renewed and liberating liturgical practice in assemblies not consciously identified as ‘feminist’. The following suggests strategies for embodying in liturgical assemblies ritual patterns that would extend and (...)

  • Abundant Body Narratives: Re-Visioning the Theological Embodiment of Women Through Feminist Theology and Art as a Way of Flourishing.Megan Clay - 2017 - Feminist Theology 25 (3):248-256.
    One of my projects as a Research Fellow for The Institute for Theological Partnerships at the University of Winchester is the Feminist Theology and Art Forum. This project was born out of my Doctoral thesis which combines both art and feminist liberation theologies. Thus creating a methodology in which art as language gives voice to women’s experience within the theological world. The Forum so far has opened a window of opportunity for female artists and feminist theologians alike to exhibit visual (...)

  • Visualizing, Conceptualizing, Imagining and Praying the Christa: In Search of Her Risen Forms1.Nicola Slee - 2012 - Feminist Theology 21 (1):71-90.
    This article explores the image and the concept of the Christa, evaluates its significance for contemporary feminist theology and spiritual practice, and suggests ways in which the notion of the Christa needs to be enlarged and developed. A distinction is made between visualizing the Christa in art and film, conceptualizing the Christa in theological discourse, imagining the Christa in fiction and poetry and ritualizing the Christa in liturgy and prayer. Whilst considerable attention has been paid to visual representations of the (...)
