Une analyse du discours du féminisme de Jean-Paul II

Anne-Joëlle Philippart
June 10, 2014

De Mulieris Dignitatem, le symptôme du Rift.
 En 1988, le pape Jean-Paul II écrit la lettre apostolique « De Mulieris Dignitatem ». Il la conçoit comme une restauration de l’image des femmes et comme la contrepartie de la déclaration Inter Insigniores (CDF, 1976) qui les excluait de la prêtrise.
La réception du texte est très variée. Les uns l’accueillent [...]
