Frank Henderson's Page on Liturgy and Medieval Women

Liturgical Language

Updated: 1 January 1999

Present Interests

There is a continued need to promote the use of language that is inclusive of women in liturgical texts. I am studying this historically, by examining the use of inclusive language in medieval Latin and vernacular texts.

There is also a need to expand horizons regarding the names and images of God that are used in liturgical texts. Again, medieval texts have something to tell us, as do the more thorough use of biblical precedents and our contemporary imaginations.
