I really admire how much Schussler Fiorenza put so much thought into this, especially from her Catholic perspective. I'm Protestant myself, so seeing from a different denominational perspective that sticks to a common view of apostolic succession through unbroken tradition was truly interesting. She even mentioned of some challenging ideas about whether women as clergy should still work within the institutionally patriarchal church with its liturgy still being androcentric, among other things.
Born Elisabeth Schüssler in Tășnad, in the Transylvanian region of the Kingdom of Romania, Professor Schüssler Fiorenza is a German feminist, theologian and Professor of Divinity at Harvard Divinity School. Schüssler Fiorenza identifies as Catholic and her work is generally in the context of Christianity, although much of her work has broader applicability.
