Note. St. Albert the Great was one of the
early scholastics who helped to build up the systematic approach to theology
that would revolutionise theology in the Middle Ages. St. Thomas Aquinas was
one of his disciples. St. Albert has been declared a Doctor of the Church.
Like his contemporaries, St. Albert the Great enumerates the
commonly accepted reasons against the ordination of women. But amazingly, and
contrary to what he does regarding other questions, he does not give his own
judgement on those reasons! See what St. Albert says
about the ordination of women.
