A study argues that the surprising openness to ecclesiastical ministry for women of Rabanus Maurus, a medieval commentator on the Book of Judges, derived from the practice of lectio divina that he shared with pre-scholastic theologians. To achieve a fuller assimilation of Christian tradition, the legacy of theologians, such as Rabanus, must be reappropriated and understood by the modern Church.
