(p.211) Chapter 13 Feminist Theology as Theology of Religions
A Garland of Feminist Reflections

Rita M. Gross

University of California Press

“Theology of religions” is a relatively new term that has to do with noting the diversity among the religions of the world and developing conceptual tools for relating to and understanding that diversity. Critical to an adequate theology of religions is that it be knowledgeable about and conversant with the great Asian wisdom traditions; merely raising one's gaze to include other monotheisms does not constitute serious encounter with religious diversity. Feminist theology is a movement that cuts across tradition lines, influences all religious traditions, and is relevant to all of them. Discussing feminist theology as theology of religions clearly presents problems. Three intertwined issues are involved: the current lack of religious diversity in most feminist theological forums, the lack of any theology of religious diversity in most feminist theology, and the relative lack of feminist participation in most formats for interreligious exchange.

Keywords:   theology of religions, monotheisms, feminist theology, diversity, Asian wisdom traditions
