Beyond the Altar illustrates how ladies spiritual conquer sexist subjugation through side-stepping the patriarchal strength of the Roman Catholic Church. This publication counters the stereotypical photograph of Catholic nuns as being loyally compliant with their church through displaying how a couple of present and previous ladies non secular in Canada problem their institutional religion’s precepts and interact in transformative thoughts to impact switch either inside and out of doors the Roman Catholic Church.

The sisters’ testimonials demonstrate never-before-shared information about their painful studies of male domination, their brave efforts to maneuver past such sexist stifling, and the women-led and women-centered non secular, governance, and activist practices they've got engendered within the overdue 20th and early twenty-first centuries.

Featuring many examples of the sisters’ resourcefulness, resilience, and resistance, this e-book fills a void in overseas scholarship on what Canadian Catholic girls spiritual have persisted and finished. via interviews and in-depth money owed of the complexities and nuances found in the present and previous sisters’ lives, readers will detect their steadfast indomitability as they strategically, and infrequently subversively, innovate their non secular spaces.
