This course will explore the extraordinary role that women have played, and continue to play, in the world’s religions. Many standout women appear in the sacred texts and traditions of the religions —as prophets, oracles and disciples. Others appear as the religions unwind themselves throughout history and women become teachers, preachers, healers, saints and sages. In short, the religions of the world, although officially “founded” by men, would be mere shadows of their current iterations were it not for the women who championed them and, in many cases, illustrated the religions' highest ideals with their very lives. We will spend 8 weeks looking at the lives of these most amazing women.
