image of Method & Theory in the Study of Religion

The rise of women-focused spirituality presents several difficulties for feminisms concerned with the liberation of women. In this paper I look at several issues. In the first I focus upon theoretical problems that arise when replacing a female deity with a male deity, while in the second I focus upon both theoretical and methodological concerns in the enterprise of locating a female based religious system. In order to do the latter, I explore a number of the epistomolgical implications found in the work of Luce Irigaray.
