The body is fertile ground for religion, the locus of religious practice. Religiosity is expressed through the observance of ceremony and dietary customs, through clothing that covers the body and suffering inflicted upon it — sacrifice, even. Religion gives meaning to bodily pain, often believed to be punishment or the path to redemption. The body is therefore central to all religions and spiritualities.

DELPHINE HORVILLEUR

After following a seminar in New York, Delphine Horvilleur returned to France to become one of the first female rabbis. As a woman, she is often denied access to religious institutions or Talmud studies. Therefore, her work mostly focuses on the place of women in religion and religious treatment of the female body and sexuality.

ANNE MORELLI

Belgian historian Anne Morelli is professor emeritus at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and former head of the Centre for Religion and Secularism. She is specialized in historical criticism, religious history and minority studies. A great deal of her work focuses on Italian migration.

THÉRÈSE HARGOT

Belgian philosopher and sexologist Thérèse Hargot is a specialist in gender studies. She focuses on power dynamics surrounding the female body and reproduction. She works as a consultant in France, working with emotional, familial and sexual traumas. On her blog, ‘Chroniques philosophiques d’une sexuologue,’ she addresses themes like contraception, sexual desire and neo-feminism.
