Abstract:
This study explores the perception of ministry, and practice of ministry among clergywomen in the Church of England through Eysenck's dimensional model of personality. The first four chapters set the study in context. Chapter one reviews the historical context of clergywomen in the Church of England. Chapter two examines personality theory, with particular reference to Eysenck's dimensional model of personality. Chapter three presents an overview of the clergywomen in the new sample. Chapter four reviews previous studies that have employed Eysenck's dimensional model of personality among clergy. The personality profile of the clergywomen in the new sample is then presented. The following four chapters examine the clergywomen's perceptions of their ministry. Chapter five considers the clergywomen's perception of their motivation to seek ordination. Chapter six examines the clergywomen's perception of the selection process. Chapter seven considers the impact type of ministry has on clergywomen's perception of job satisfaction. The next four chapters examine the clergywomen's practice of their ministry. Chapter nine considers the clergywomen's practice of ministry in respect of their role. Chapter ten considers the clergywomen's practice of ministry in respect of liturgical and pastoral ministry. Chapter eleven considers the clergywomen's practice of ministry in respect of parish and personal life. Chapter twelve considers clergywomen's practice of ministry in respect of inclusive language. The conclusion offers an assessment of personality on the perception of ministry and the practice of ministry among clergywomen.
