Spirituality concerns one’s orientation to life. It therefore influences one’s identity. This article recognizes a plurality of spiritualities. It focuses on the relationship between women’s experiences and spirituality within the framework of Christian faith. The concept patriarchaler Entfremdung is illuminated. This is the alienation women experience when they exist as women in male-defined, male-structured and male-dominated ecclesiastical cultures. As far as “identity” is concerned, the problem of women’s spiritual development and maturity as pre-requisite for an authentic life before God is discussed.
