The Feminine and the Sacred, Hardback Book


Is there anything sacred that can simultaneously be considered strictly feminine?

Two of the leaders of European feminist thought investigate stories of African rites, Catholic saints, Jewish traditions and psychological case studies in an overarching exploration of how women throughout the world cope with forces beyond their control or understanding.

In an exchange of letters, they consider a range of emotional dispositions with reference to contemporary figures including Madonna, the late Princess of Wales, Mother Teresa and Eva Peron.
