"In the Shadow of the Crucifix: VATICAN II and the Global Church"

Marian Ronan is a Research Professor of Catholic Studies in the Center for World Christianity New York Theological Seminary, NY, NY.

Former president of the Women's Ordination Conference Board, Marian has been active in efforts to renew the church since the early 1970s. In the 1980s she co-authored three books on feminist theology and spirituality, including Wisdom's Feast: Sophia in Study and Celebration.  Her Ph.D. in Religion was awarded by Temple University in Philadelphia.

In her recent book, *Tracing the Sign of the Cross: Sexuality, Mourning, and the Future of American Catholicism, Marian reflects on the enormous losses suffered by post-immigrant American Catholics since Vatican II, and on how the path toward a more productive American Catholic future involves working through those losses.
