The Encyclopedia of Women in World Religions: Faith and Culture Across History (2018/19) owes a debt of gratitude to Serinity Young. Dr. Young edited the Encyclopedia of Women and World Religion that was published in 1999. The popularity of that work contributed to the interest of some of the contributors who made the 2018/19 two volume work possible.
When reviewing Encyclopedia of Women in World Religions: Faith and Culture Across History, The Center for Partnership Studies called it the new encyclopedia on women in world religions. That is because those at CPS remember Dr. Young’s earlier work.
Today I came across a book review of a new work with a great title, Women Who Fly: Goddesses, Witches, Mystics, and other Airborne Females. I was drawn to it because, in addition to its cool title, the author’s name is Serinity Young. A thoughtful review of this work can be found at Reading Religion.
Thanks Dr. Young for your work on women in religion. I look forward to reading Women Who Fly!
