Welcome to the web site of the Centre for Women and Christian Traditions!

The Centre for Women and Christian Traditions (Centre FTC/WCT) promotes and supports Women's Studies and feminist research at Saint Paul University.

As a bilingual and multidisciplinary centre, the Centre for Women and Christian Traditions wishes to create a network involving those interested in Women's Studies and feminist research in Theology, Human Sciences, Philosophy, Counselling and Spirituality, Conflict Studies, Religion, and Ecofeminism.

The Centre's office is located in Room 381 of Laframboise Hall at Saint Paul University.

Current research project (2012–2015)

The recent research program of the active members of the Centre for Women and Christian Traditions concerns women's spirituality and the works of justice it can accomplish. Rarely is spirituality, properly understood, merely a private, static, inward-turned concept. Whether personal or communal, an authentic spirituality bears fruit: women energized and empowered by spiritual values and insights can reform social evils, heal deep wounds and effect reconciliation, bring striking new discoveries to research in theology, philosophy and human sciences, and re-vision traditions so as to build a fresh and hope-filled future.

Research : Women as Peacemakers/Femmes, artisanes de paix (2009–2012)

The Centre for Women and Christian Traditions is pleased to announce the publication (in French) of the results of the research project entitled "Women as Peacemakers/Femmes, artisanes de paix."

The project sought to encourage research initiatives focusing on the role of women in peacemaking, including but not limited to the spiritual implications of such roles.

A conference was held on the topic in November 2011 and the book was published by Médiaspaul in the summer of 2013. Books can be purchased from the Centre or directly from Médiaspaul here.
