This book discusses from various angles the position of women in the Roman Catholic Church more specifically with regard to the diaconate. Theological, historical, pastoral, canonical and legal considerations are taken into account. The book makes clear that the old discussion is also lively today as only the ordination of women to the priesthood is currently closed for further debate. The thoughts developed in this book are certainly not exhaustive, nor do they all go into the same direction. Yet they can offer stepping stones to a future which may do right thoroughly to the Church, to women and to the wellbeing of all Christian faithful.
