Visionary Women as Popular Theologians

(p.109) 10 Hearts and Nations
Our Lady of the Nations

This chapter discusses women visionaries in the role of popular theologans. Two adult women who encapsulate this concept were Jeanne-Louise Ramonet of Kerizinen, Brittany and Ida Peerdeman of Amsterdam. Both were rejected by the Church, although more recently Ida’s apparitions have been approved by her diocese. In both cases, female religious orders have maintained the shrines and form the core of support. Kerizinen’s international fame has faded, but the Amsterdam visions have a large global following. Nevertheless, both women’s work can be analysed like other theologians, in terms of its development and contribution. While both drew on existing Mariological tradition, they reworked it in an original way with symbolic ideas that have captured the interest of many devotees worldwide.
