More Description

This title considers various issues regarding celibacy and Christianity including the following: how the female body is used to underpin exploitative social systems, how Christianity has tried to control the bodies of women through regulations about the female body, how women have used celibacy to subvert the social order, how radical incarnationalism and queer theory create new challenges to traditional understandings of celibacy, how being erotic and celibate may manifest in social, sexual and political ways. It also explores how being erotically celibate challenges patriarchal society and opens up new theological understanding.
