Cotton Mather called them "the hidden ones." Although historians of religion occasionally refer to the fact that women have always constituted a majority of churchgoers, until recently none of them have investigated the historical implications of the situation or v the role of woman in the church. But the focus of church history has been moving toward a broader awareness, from studying religious institutions and their pastors to studying the people--the laity--and the nature of religious experience. This book explores the many common elements of this experience for women in church and temple, regardless of their differences in faith.
"Significantly broadens our understanding of women in history and religion, and functions as an important catalyst in the ongoing struggle of women with their spiritual heritage."--Journal of the American Academy of Religion
