Part of Re-energizing the Renewal:

A Webinar Symposium Series to Celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Second Vatican Council

Elyse Raby, PhD

Elyse Raby is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Religious Studies at Santa Clara University. A Catholic systematic theologian, she works at the intersections of ecclesiology, embodiment, and gender. She has written on metaphor in ecclesiology (Horizons, 2022), on theologies of the diaconate (Ecumenical Trends, 2022) and on priesthood and ministry (U.S. Catholic, April 2019), and on intersex and theologies of creation (Theology & Sexuality, 2018). She has also preached on authority in the church for the online resource Catholic Women Preach (August 2020). Her first book will analyze the metaphor of the church as a body in nineteenth and twentieth-century Catholic theology and, in particular, how different understandings of embodiment shape our understandings of the church, its ministry, and its relationship to the world. She holds a Ph.D. from Boston College.
