Women and Religion at CSB/SJU

Mother Willibalda Scherbauer, O.S.B.

Willibalda Scherbauer, O.S.B., by S. Thomas Carey

Inspired by the Sisters of the Order of Saint Benedict, faculty and students have long affirmed women's role in religion, questioned women's exclusion from ordination, and explored women's spirituality.  This exhibits traces some of the ways Saint Benedict's women have led the exploration of women's full participation in religious traditions.
