Description

When women began to be ordained as priests in the Church of England in 1994, a dual structure was created known as the 'two integrities' to allow those who continue to oppose women's ordination to maintain institutional life served by a male-only priesthood and 'flying bishops' who remain untainted by women's ordination. My research explores whether women priests are changing the emphasis on gender differentiation in the material and symbolic world of the Church and whether they remain in liminality because of the two integrities. I ask how women priests establish their sense of belonging in an institution where their ordained status is erased through gendered beliefs about authority, the sacraments, and the divine and in what ways they resist and rebel against masculinised practices, language and symbols.
