Bounded Identities: Women And Religion In Colonial Brazil, 1550–1750, Carole A. Myscofski Sep 1998

Bounded Identities: Women And Religion In Colonial Brazil, 1550–1750, Carole A. Myscofski

Carole Myscofski

This article examines the creation of women’s gender identity in the religious discourse of colonial Brazil and documents the creation of two separate norms—one for elite women and another for slave, lower-class, and mixed-race women. The Roman Catholic Church, closely linked with the Portuguese monarchic state and its colonial ambitions, transmitted both norms in religious guidebooks, missionary letters and sermons. This summary centers on the defining role for women in marriage, and indicates that the epoch of colonial Brazil is particularly important for feminist        study. With the increasingly disparate perspectives on women from Late Antiquity, the Humanists, and ...


Theology For The Beach, Vaughan S. Roberts Jun 1998

Theology For The Beach, Vaughan S. Roberts

Vaughan S Roberts

Arising from my paper ‘The Sea of Faith: After Dover Beach’ (1997) this presentation to an annual conference of naval chaplains explores how water and sea might function as organizational metaphors for chaplaincy ministry. A fully revised version was published as ‘Water as an implicit metaphor for organizational change within the Church’ (2002) in the journal Implicit Religion and can be found here: https://www.equinoxpub.com/journals/index.php/IR/article/view/2946/

Campaigns Against Gender Violence (1977-1993), Professor Vibhuti Patel Jan 1998

Campaigns Against Gender Violence (1977-1993), Professor Vibhuti Patel

Professor Vibhuti Patel

The women's movement in India launched campaigns against rape, domestic violence, sexism in advertisements as well as against state repression during caste and communal riots in the early eighties. Before that, during the postemergency period of 1977-1980, small groups of women's rights activists in Hyderabad, Bombay, Delhi and Madras had started taking up individual cases of custodial rape, deaths of-housewives under mysterious circumstances and excesses by the state enforcement machinery during caste/communal riots which had increased in number and intensity of violence. The mass of poor women involved in the struggles of the tribal people, the industrial ...

Torture And Eucharist: Theology, Politics, And The Body Of Christ, William Cavanaugh Dec 1997

Torture And Eucharist: Theology, Politics, And The Body Of Christ, William Cavanaugh

William T. Cavanaugh

"Cavanaugh begins with an engrossing analysis of the dynamics of torture and disappearance as a mode disciplining the body politic. He judiciously uses psychological and social scientific sources without letting them override the theological focus of the book. He then gives an equally engrossing account of the Church in Chile under Pinochet. His analyses both of Maritain and the 'New Christendom' ecclesiology provide as interesting critique of the failures of the Church to respond to Pinochet's repression, while his concluding chapter on eucharistic theology points towards the source of the successful responses made by the Church. Particularly useful and ...

Heterodoxy, Gender, And The Brazilian Inquisition: Patterns In Religion In The 1590s, Carole A. Myscofski Dec 1997

Heterodoxy, Gender, And The Brazilian Inquisition: Patterns In Religion In The 1590s, Carole A. Myscofski

Carole Myscofski

In 1591, the Portuguese Inquisition visited Salvador, the colonial capital of Brazil. In the course of that and the following year, 80 men and 38 women confessed their sins during two periods of grace, before the tribunal of Visitor General, Notary, and Bailiff (and their Secretary). While the men and women who came before the tribunal to confess shared an understanding of public shame and personal responsibility, they nonetheless diverged in the crimes they admitted and in their attitudes toward their moral duty. This article analyzes the pattern of similarities and differences in men's and women's confessions and ...
