Women in Religion Collection

Collection ID: 
Record Group


This is an artificialcollection initiated by Temple Faculty in 1972 and continued by Wayne Maxson and later by other Temple University Librarians.  Its aim was to collect documentary materials growing out of the increasing interest and action of women as they looked closely at their role in religious groups and in the church hierarchy.  The Collection includes committee reports, working papers, newspaper clippings, periodicals, and resource packets.

Denominations represented include mainstream Protestant churches, African-American churches, Catholic churches, Jewish organizations, the Baha’i faith, several theological seminaries, and other religious organizations such as the World Council of Churches, The Women’s Caucus, and The Philadelphia Task Force on Women in Religion. 

The collection consists of approximately 10 linear feet of files which is arranged alphabetically by organization name.

(The following represents the contents as of 1975.)
