Valerie C. Saiving

Professor of Religious Studies
1959-1987

Her article, "The Human Situation," published in 1960 in the Journal of Religion, is often listed as the single most important and influential piece of writing in the invention of feminist religion in the United States in the 20th Century.

Her influence continues in today's programs at the Colleges. "One of the pleasant memories I have was the sense of solidarity I had when I came here in the 1970s," says Mary Gerhart, Professor Emerita of Religious Studies. "Saiving and Heaton supported each other and would support me, too."
