The role of women in the Church has been hotly debated by all Christian Churches, especially as it relates to ordained ministry. In the Orthodox Church, this conversation has focused on the existence of women's ordination to the diaconate. This book traces the development and growth of this ordained expression of ministry in the Christian East. By examining scriptural, patristic, and liturgical evidence, as well as the lives of the women saints identified as deacons, the author demonstrates that women were ordained as deacons to dynamic and evangelical ministries of prayer, teaching, pastoral care and social concern.

Book Description Holy Cross Pr November 1998, 1998. Paper Back. Condition: New. A great deal of careful historical research into patristic, liturgical, and canonical sources has obviously gone into this work, to form a description of the nature of the female diaconate in the early Church. The real question comes down to whether women deacons received an ''ordination'' in the same sense as male deacons, or whether they received a ''blessing'' or ''appointment'' for particular ministry in the Church. FitzGerald argues for the former. In any case, this is a major contribution to the debate, and a strong argument in favor of the ''rejuvenation'' of the order of deaconess in the contemporary Orthodox Church. Appendices include a list of women deacon saints, and the ancient Byzantine ordination rite of the deaconess. Seller Inventory # 152921
