The de-feminisation of Jesus Friday 25th May 7.30 pm

Central to debates about Jesus is the issue of whether he uniquely embodies the divine. While this discussion continues unabated, both those who affirm and those who dismiss Jesus’ divinity regularly eclipse the reality that in many of the earliest strands of the Christian tradition when Jesus’ divinity is proclaimed, Jesus is imaged as the female divine.
Sally Douglas has written about these early texts and excavates the motivations for imaging Jesus as Woman Wisdom and the complex reasons that this began to be suppressed in the 2nd and 3rd centuries. She also looks at Woman Wisdom in contemporary context.

Join us at the Sycamore Tree as we discuss the ideas around Sally’s work and book.

7.30 pm Friday May the 25th from 7.15 pm.
