Audio: The Role of Women in the Catholic Church

May. 12, 2009, 2:42 PM


Listen to historian Gary Macy speaking on the role of women in the Catholic Church. The very idea of the ordination of women in the Roman Catholic Church is dismissed by many as contrary to basic church doctrine. Gary Macy, the John Nobili, S.J. Professor of Theology at Santa Clara University, says historical evidence is overwhelming that for much of the church’s history, the ordination of women was a fact. Hear his lecture from May 11, 2009, in Benton Chapel on the campus of Vanderbilt University. Macy is the author of The Hidden History of Women’s Ordination.
