Description
Summary:This article was given as a lecture for the Pitts Library Reformation Day at Emory University, October, 25, 2019. It explores if and how the German, medieval monk Martin Luther could be helpful to white feminist theology today as it stretches beyond itself to join the community of global feminist theologians. It demonstrates how specific ideas of Luther, such as his trust in bodily experiences and the outward turn to the neighbor in his doctrine of salvation, can be helpful to the feminist theological conversation today. But it also shows his limits, especially in his attitudes towards women, difference, and his upholding of patriarchal ideas.
