Abstract [en]

While body and sexuality are often the main focus of gender studies, motherhood is not. The purpose of this article is to analyze and reinterpret the conceptualization of motherhood in the perspective of a critical discussion between Scandinavian and Anglo-American feminist theology in relation to Mary, the mother of Jesus, as an image of the mother. Mary strongly promotes both gender stereotypes and petrified Christian dogmas. This is why a parallel reflection on gender stereotypes of motherhood and the image of the virgin mother Mary is important. The strategies used by contemporary feminist theologians tend either to leave aside gender stereotypes or religious petrified dogmas. Through a reinterpretation of the story of the annunciation a rereading is presented, which neither locks Mary up in a patriarchal view of motherhood, nor lets petrified dogmas determine the interpretation. The characteristic of motherhood of not being in control (heteronomy) is emphasized, but simultaneously the patriarchal abuse of this phenomenon is confronted. Mary should neither be reduced to the stereotype of the oppressed woman, nor to the ideal of the vulnerable female, but should be envisioned as someone who shows us the close relation between exposure, oppression, vulnerability and love
