1.1631 The Portrayal and Use of 'Motherhood' in Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe of Lynn.
Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe were both medieval mystics who had a profound impact on the image of Christian feminine divinity. One of the most interesting aspects of their religious philosophies, and of their private communications with God, was the way in which both women portrayed and used motherhood in their perceptions and understandings of the divine. 8.5 pgs. 17 f/c. 6b.

2.1783 Women's Spirtuality: The Book of Genesis.
This paper explores what can be noticed as an important sub-text within Genesis, in what is revealed of the personality of Sarah and her spiritual development within, or perhaps in spite of, an environment that can easily be described as overwhelmingly sexist, patriarchal and occasionally chauvinist. We can observe too some decorum, nonetheless, with regard to the treatment of women that were considered honorable, and Sarah definitely retains her hard-earned prestige as the story of the origins of the people of Israel is brought to its conclusion. 19 pgs. 28 f/c. 14b.

3.2012 "Yin" and the "Devil's Gateway": A Comparative Assessment of Women's Experience in some Major World Religions.
This paper will be argued that religions cannot be separated from the cultural and ideological contexts that foster their creation. From this perspective, with any reference to a saving transcendent experience removed from the argument, it will be shown how the experience of women within the patriarchal structures of most religious systems has been more tragic than comic in its denial of the potential of half the human species to fully contribute to our understanding of what it means to be human. 10 pgs. 19 f/c. 6b.

6.2746 A Critical Analysis Of Academic Feminist Approaches To Religion.
This paper will examine the various feminist approaches to critical religious studies. Feminist theology is a departure from traditional approaches in that it attempts to locate women's power in a theology that is decidedly male centered. The importance of a feminist undertaking of this sort is unquestionable because of the large numbers of women who identify both as feminists and as part of the Christian religious community. 11.5 pgs. 14 f/c. 8b.
