Abstract

What about the portrayal of gender differentiation in the religious language of the Christian tradition, be it the speech on an asexated God, Jésus, Marie, the characters of the Bible, or the doctrinal and liturgical expression? The author goes from the French language to the original biblical languages. A number of constant recurrent developments raise the issue of the effects on Christianity of its inclusion in the category of genus. A broader problem highlights the difficulty of establishing a critical feminist narrative with a linguistic instrument calibrated by and for patriarchal societies in its own logic.
