WOMEN in theology


I recently took time at work over lunch to sketch portraits of prominent women in theological thought.


Above is a sketch done in HB pencil of the Jewish French mystic and philosopher Simone Weil (1909-1943). The photo used for reference (circa 1921) is uncredited but readily accessible online. For more about Simone Weil please visit the American Weil Society.


The above sketch (done in 2B pencil) is of Catherine Pickstock, Fellow and Professor of Metaphysics and Poetics of Emmanuel College, Cambridge. The photo used for reference appears to have been taken in the 1990s and serves as the photo for her Emmanuel College faculty profile.


This final sketch, also done in 2B pencil, is of the German theologian Dorothee Sölle (1929-2003). The photo used for reference (circa 1960) is uncredited but readily accessible online. For more about Dorothee Sölle please visit the following article at Religious Socialism.
