Abstract

The feminist theological literature highlights certain weaknesses in the traditional (Western) Christian understanding of eschatology, death and the concept of time. Many feminist theologians reject the linear time concept and the idea of final, fixed eschatology in which death is an enemy to be conquered and flourishing is postponed and reserved to another time and space. However, an alternative convincing vision for a concept of time in which eschatology and death have a place and meaning that is congruent with the feminist concerns and priorities is yet to be developed. My thesis aims to explore and suggest a workable concept of time from a feminist theological perspective with a reference to feminist eschatology and the role and meaning of death.
