On Women and Divinity in Religion

So many people are interested in women and history, and several good documentaries have been made. Unfortunately, these TV programs have a tendency to disappear in all the other materials that keeps holding women's importance in history and divinity out of the public eye. I discussed in a former blog post the issue that some of the best documentaries that look at women's importance in spirituality, history and religion, have been removed from the internet. However, here is a list of what I have seen so far and what I can recommend.

Please note, that this list also contains those removed from the internet. However, you should be able to find links on my blog to most of the documentaries as I update them when possible. Just look look under the tag called 'documentary'.

By Professor Francesca Stavrakopoulou
