Glasgow University graduate Professor Moira McQueen is one of the 30 new appointments made to the International Theological Commission
Professor Moira McQueen is among of a number of women and non-Europeans appointed by Pope Francis to the commission, which is tasked with helping the Holy See and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith examine doctrinal questions of major importance.
The new appointments will serve on the ninth term of the commission, which will run from 2014-2019.
I’d add Catherine of Genoa to the list. I thought that she was considered a Doctor of the Church but I guess I was wrong. In any case, her book on Purgatory is very influential. It literally changed the way I think about death and judgement. She was also a married woman.
