What You Don’t Hear From The Pulpit: Centre for Religion in Society Webinar
November 23, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Hosted by the Centre for Religion in Society.
Dr Sharon Jagger is in conversation with Dr Alex Fry, whose new book ‘Gender Inequality in the Ordained Ministry of the Church of England’ takes a closer look at the views of male clergy in the Church of England who remain against women’s ordination. Dr Fry’s research explores the viewpoints of clergy who believe the priesthood is exclusively male and identifies the historical, social and psychological processes that underpin these viewpoints. What theological arguments are put forward to support these views? How do they view their female colleagues? What do they think of the Church’s structural accommodation of their positions? What are the sources of these beliefs?
The Centre for Religion in Society (CRiS) at York St John University provides a forum where scholars and practitioners can come together to examine the role of religion in the cultural, social and political life of society.
Dr Alex Fry is a Lecturer in Sociology at Bournemouth University. Dr Sharon Jagger is lecturer in Religion at York St. John.
This is a Humanities Now! event, by the School of Humanities.
