Women and Catholicism Gender, Communion, and Authority

Award-winning Catholic scholar Phyllis Zagano investigates three distinct situations in the Catholic Church, each pointing to Catholicism's global weak spot: the role of women in the Church.



Each of the three cases reflects the tension between communion and authority, particularly where women are concerned. The thread of women in the church weaves a tapestry that sheds light on the Catholic Church's hierarchically-imposed laws and sanctions designed to keep women at a distance from the holy, whether as liturgical ministers, as wives of priests, or as priests themselves.
