julian of norwichWith Harold Rosen

In this course we explore the lives, thoughts and deeds of 9 outstanding women of history. Their spiritual radiance, intellectual brilliance and moral courage overcame the barriers of their patriarchal cultures.  They were provocative and influential reformers who could not be ignored or overlooked.  They were mystical, visionary and with a futuristic bent, but also made significant social impact in their own turbulent times.  Their lives span over 2500 years, and range from India to the Middle East to the West.  We will examine their relevance to current religious, social and spiritual concerns.
