“Introducing the Category of Gender to Roman Catholic Theology – a Liberal Approach,” By Angelika Walser

00010002This contribution outlines the status quo, the basic difficulties, and the implications of the category of gender being introduced to traditional Roman Catholic theology. In contrast to the anxiety the introduction of gender has provoked in official documents of the Catholic Church, my contribution aims to emphasize the positive inspiration which goes along with this new hermeneutical and analytical category, seen from a liberal feminist point of view. It entails the rediscovery of the meaning of the vulnerable body and the need for the protection of its integrity as a universal starting point for cross-cultural and inter-religious dialogue.
