Four women are formally part of the magisterium - the official teaching body of the Roman Catholic Church. Here, theologian Mary T. Malone adeptly explores the stories of these visionaries. She introduces us to the wisdom of the formidable Hildegard of Bingen; the all-encompassing compassion of Catherine of Siena; the groundbreaking writings of Teresa of Avila; and finally, the heartfelt 'Little Way' of the much-loved Therese of Lisieux.
This timely and engrossing work brings to life the trials and triumphs of these inspiring women, whose bravery and intellectual prowess opened the door for new discussions on the role of women in the Church.
