Vatican newspaper begins series on 'theology of women'

 |  NCR Today

The Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano’s monthly insert “Women Church World” (Donna Chiesa Mondo) will be offering a series of articles focusing on the theology of women, beginning with its next edition January 2-3, Vatican radio reported.

The series comes in response to Pope Francis’ repeated calls for a reexamination of the “theology of women” in the Church.

As editor Lucetta Scaraffia explains in a January editorial, each month a male or female theologian will analyze “this open question central to the Church today” as a means for “enriching…the discussion” about the contributions to and the role of women in the Church.
