Historiskt om vigning av kvinnor

En artikel tar upp ännu en bok (av många) som visar att historien medvetet tycks ha förvanskats....

Gary Macy's The Hidden History of Women's Ordination: Female Clergy in the Medieval West

Kommer med spänning att följa de fortsatta bloggrapporterna varav detta var den första.


"What would happen if Roman Catholic scholars (or non-Catholic) discovered that in the first few centuries women were ordained? Protestants could shift, though it would take some serious work for some groups to change on ordaining women. /.../ The Catholic tradition though, in the 12th and 13th Centuries, made some serious judgments that led to ordaining only men for the eucharistic ministry.

So, when Gary Macy argues, as he will, that prior to those Centuries Roman Catholics did "ordain" women, he opens up more than a can of worms. He both opens up a fissure in the tradition and puts himself in a position of some serious criticism -- and he's gotten it. From no less a figure than the recently-deceased Cardinal Avery Dulles. But he makes his point: "This is a history that has been deliberately forgotten, intentionally marginalized, and, not infrequently, creatively explained away""
