Carol Christ: Goddess Ethics

Nurture life
Walk in love and beauty
Trust the knowledge that comes through the body
Speak the truth about conflict, pain, and suffering
Take only what you need
Think about the consequences of your actions for seven generations
Approach the taking of life with great restraint
Practice great generosity
Repair the web

~ Carol P. Christ, "I specifically discussed the structural nature of injustice and offered Nine Touchstones of Goddess ethics as an alternative to the Ten Commandments of Biblical religion."


  1. Hello, I'm from Italy. I write a lots about Feminist Theology, but here in Italy, women are still slaves from the "God Male".
    Carol Christ's Books are not translated into italian! Here, the Theology, is still phallocentric, a "thing for men" (and some men hate me, because I speak about God Mother).
    I hope I can read something more about Carol, because I have already written about Rosemary Radford Ruether, Mary Daly, Uta Ranke Heinamann, but Carol is not translate in my language :(


    here, and on other blogs, I speak about Feminist Theology! Here in Italy, Feminist Theology is not popular... few women write about it. Few women believe in a Goddess or God-Mother. We are still slaves under the patriarchal ideas :( I try to say to other italian women "hey, wake up! let's spit on saint thomas d'aquin and his scorn about women! let's believe in a Goddess!" but few women listen to these ideas ;(
