The essays in this volume seek to introduce a higher level of theoretical analysis of religious experiences of women by means of close readings of situations in which women are given or denied authority in ritual and interpretive contexts. This approach encompasses not only how women arerepresented, but also particular strategies of debate about women, how women are depicted as negotiating certain kinds of authority, and how women might resist traditional authority in specific colonial and post colonial situations.
