An examination of the gendered elements within the sacred texts, rituals and practices of the world's major religions, with an emphasis on monotheistic traditions. We will analyse religious claims about the nature of woman and man and about the divine and the sacred, seeking to discern the gendered dimensions of those claims, and seeking to understand how those claims influence religious authority and relations between men and women within specific religious traditions. We will also explore the influence of religious assumptions concerning gender and sex on contemporary Australian society.
