Essays on Woman is a collection of seven self-contained essays delivered by now-Saint Edith Stein in different venues throughout her years as a Catholic laywoman and professor. They give a summary of her teachings on the nature, problems, and possibilities of women, including female education and professional chances; spirituality; the church, woman, and youth; and women's importance in national life.
Edith Stein's writings on women are the result of both contemplation and discussion with other leaders of the Catholic feminist movement in German-speaking nations between World Wars. Edith Stein has been described as one of the most influential German-Jewish women of the twentieth century.
This updated second edition contains textual changes, significant new supplemental data, and previously unpublished information on the spirituality of the lay and religious women.
Includes a subject and geographical index, as well as editor introductions.
