April 19: “Hidden Leadership: Early Christian Woman” with Dr. Ally Kateusz
April 19 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
Early Christian art portrays Mary and other women clergy serving as deacons, presbyters, priests, and bishops. How does this new evidence that Mary was remembered as a powerful role model for women leaders — women apostles, baptizers, and presiders at the ritual meal — change our understanding of Christianity in the modern world? Dr. Ally Kateusz is a Research Associate with the Wijngaards Institute of Catholic Research in London, a recipient of the Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza New Scholar Award, and the daughter of our member Jane Gilbreath.
