The question of restoring women to the ordained diaconate surfaced during the Second Vatican Council and continued to resound in academic and pastoral circles well after the diaconate was restored as a permanent order in the church in the West. This volume contains twelve essays five translated from Italian, three translated from French, and four in their original English that answer the questions about the history and possible future of women deacons.

"The ministry of women in the Church continues to be a vital issue. This new collection presents us with an ample dossier of carefully researched essays on the history of women deacons and the possibility of restoring this valuable ministry today. We owe Phyllis Zagano a debt of gratitude for collecting these pieces, many of them appearing for the first time in English. This book deserves serious attention by historians, theologians, and Church leaders alike."John Baldovin, SJ, Boston College School of Theology & Ministry
