Notes to Feminist Philosophy of Religion

1. Liberation theology is marked by a “preferential option for the poor,” and it interprets the New Testament primarily as a message about social justice. For feminist perspectives, see for example Welch 1985 and Elizabeth Schussler-Fiorenza (ed.) 1996. Environmental theologies have been strongly influenced both by liberation theology and ecofeminism; see Radford Ruether (ed.) 1996. Postcolonialist theologies are interested in deconstructing western dominant regimes of knowledge; for exemplary studies, see Pui-lan 2005 and Catherine Keller, et al. (eds.) 2004.
