This talk will examine the interpretation of Ephesians 4:1-16 in the thought of Thomas Aquinas, who taught Christian theology at the University of Paris in the 13th century. It will place Aquinas’ interpretation of this passage into dialogue with current literature on women’s experiences, exploring the possibilities for an understanding of “wholeness in community” that takes both of these perspectives into account.
