Abstract

Feminist engagement with liturgy has produced an abundance of new texts. This essay seeks to complement the production of feminist texts for prayer by considering ways in which feminist liturgy might more intentionally reflect on practices which mediate feminist liturgical principles' and especially the congruence of non-verbal aspects of liturgy with texts for and about feminist liturgy. The essay juxtaposes literature in feminist liturgy with literature in wider circles of liturgical theology. It draws a number of clues from the work of Nicola Slee and also considers contributions from Rosemary Radford Ruether, Letty Russell and Siobhan Garrigan.
