Is religious development of women basically different from that of men? That is the central question discussed in this paper. From the theoretical literature and empirical research reports one could get a sense that women are more given to connected knowing and close relationships, also with God, than men. A detailed comparison of Fowler, Oser and Gmünder, and Teresa of Avila yields certain differences, which could possibly support the hypothesized difference, yet more research is needed. A tentative conclusion is as follows: Women may have contributed more to the understanding of connectedness and close relationships with God than men, but men can also live closely connected and God-related lives.
