Katharine Lee Bates
Katharine Lee Bates was an ardent feminist and the author of the song "America the Beautiful." She attended Wellesley college and later returned to join the faculty. While on staff she met Katharine Coman and began a relationship that lasted for 25 years. Bates and Coman's relationship might be best described as a romantic friendship. It is not clear whether their relationship was sexual, but it was intensely loving; Bates referred to Coman as her "Joy of Life" and wrote many poems about their love. Both women had successful careers at Wellesley collegeBates became chair of the English department, while Coman became chair of the Economics Department and Dean of the college. They kept contact with other educated women who lived in couples as they did, but they did not assume roles as lesbian activists. In 1912, Coman was diagnosed with cancer, and Bates nursed her until Coman died in 1915. In 1922, Bates published a limited volume of poetry entitled, "Yellow Clover," where she wrote of their relationship.

Aphra Behn
Aphra Behn ( 33k JPG image ), alleged by Vita Sackville-West to be the first women in England to earn a living as a writer, is a bit of a mystery. Little is known about her backgroundwho her parents were and where she was bornbut the details of her life that are known paint the portrait of an intriguing woman. Aphra lived for a time in Surinam, an experienced that inspired her first novel, Oroonoko, or The Royal Slave (1688). She was married for a short time and widowed at age 25. She secured employment as a spy for King Charles II and was sent to Belgium in this capacity. The King refused to pay her return trip, however, and after borrowing the funds to return, she was thrown into debtor's prison. After leaving prison, Aphra worked hard to make sure she was always capable of supporting herself. She became a successful London playwright and then a novelist. She wrote poetry, feeling that this form allowed her to express her "masculine" side. Aphra's opinions were unconventional, and because she openly expressed her viewpoints in her lifestyle and through her writing, she was seen as scandalous. Her poetry remarks on romantic relationships with both men and women, discusses rape and impotence, puts forth a woman's right to sexual pleasure, and includes scenes of eroticism between men.

Noli Irritare Leones
May 06, 2004 Ordination of Women: a response to Christopher Jones I promised Christopher Jones that I would get back to what I think of his argument against ordaining women, so, before I move on to any further discussion of the relevant passages in Paul, I'm going to post my now overdue response. The purpose of this post is not so much to prove that I'm right and he's wrong, as to try to clarify where we actually agree and disagree - which of his premises do I already accept, and which don't I? I'll snip a bit in quoting his points; you can always read his full post 1. The Saviour chose no women apostles and (so far as we know) commissioned no women to teach or exercise the power of the keys In the broader sense of the word "apostle," there were women in the early church who might be referred to as apostles; Junia, Mary Magdalene ("apostle to the apostles"). But Jesus did, in fact, choose only men for the Twelve. I see this as tied to the role of the Twelve as a prophetic sign representing the fulfillment of God's promises to Israel; as representatives of the tribes of Israel (which are associated with twelve brothers), the Twelve were men. (Of course, this is my interpretation. We aren't ever told why they're all men, probably because it wouldn't have occurred to anyone as remarkable.) The "keys" are important to Christopher's argument, because they are an important part of his sense of what the priesthood is about. In a later post, I'll discuss the view of ministry among early Quakers, and why they felt free to include women, but for now, I'll look at those keys. The keys, in Matthew, are given first to Peter (Matt 16:20), and later to "the disciples" (Matt 18:18). They confer the power of binding and loosing; the commentaries I've read say that this is rabbinic terminology. It's not clear to me to whom exactly the keys are meant to be conferred - other than, of course, Peter - because I'm not sure just who is included in "the disciples." Presumably, "the disciples" are people who follow Jesus more closely than the listening crowds, but are they only the Twelve? Are they all men? There is, indeed, no record of Jesus giving the keys to any woman, but then, no man besides Peter is named, either.

Emily Dickinson
Emily Dickinson, one of America's most famous poets, was born in Amherst to a prominent family. She was educated at Amerherst Academy, the institution her grandfather helped found. She spent a year at the Mt. Holyoke Female Seminary, but left because she didn't like the religious environment and because her parents asked her home. In her twenties, Emily led a busy social life, but she became more reclusive with each passing year. By her thirties, she stayed to her home and withdrew when visitors arrived. She developed a reputation as a myth, because almost never seen and, when people did catch sight of her, she was always wearing white. But while she withdrew from physical contact with people, she did not withdraw from them mentally. Emily was an avid letter-writer who corresponded with a great number of friends and relatives. 1000 of these letters (a portion of what she wrote) survived her death, and they show her letter writing to be very similar to her poetic styleenigmatic and abstract, sometimes fragmented, and often forcefully sudden in emotion. Emily often included poetry with her letters to friends. Her friends encouraged her to publish, but after an attempt to do so in 1860 (when the publisher suggested she hold off) Emily did not appear to try again. The eight poems that were published in her lifetime were primarily poems submitted by her friends without her permission. Her death revealed 1768 more poems.

Sappho the Poet, from Lesvos
Once upon a time, very long ago, in fact in the seventh and sixth centuries B.C., there lived a lyric poet named Sappho. In her world, and in the world of the epic poet Homer who preceded her, Dawn had rosy fingers and the sea was wine-dark. The stars circling the moon blushed and hid their bright faces in awe when the moon's brilliance graced the evening sky. And Aphrodite, the purple-robed goddess of love, lived in a golden house and rode in a yoked chariot pulled by swift-winged sparrows.
For books on Sappho, click here

These are the images created by Sappho, Greece's exalted lyric poet, the honey-voiced songbird of the ancient world. She is the most famous person who ever lived on the island of Lesovs.
Sappho was highly esteemed in her day and the homage continues. Her image appeared on coins minted in Mytilene and a huge statue of her was in the town's square. The ancient writer Strabo called Sappho "a marvelous creature and said "In all recorded history I know of no woman who comes close to rivaling her as a poet." A man called Solon of Athens begged to be taught one of her poems and said "Let me learn it and then I can die."
Who was she, exactly, and why has her poetry endured? Why is she the source of tantalizing legends and speculations? Actually, very little is known about Sappho's life and what is known is disputed. Scholars seem to agree that she wrote nine books of poetry, none of which has survived, and that she lived during a golden time of extraordinary intellectual richness along the coast of Asia Minor, near the great cultural centers of Ephesus. Smyrna, and Phocaea. Born in Mytilene or Eressos on the island of Lesbos she was known in her time as the Lesbian poet, and in ancient times that meant simply the poet from Lesbos. The modern word lesbian comes from her birthplace.

114. Sappho: Poem I
Translation and transliteration of sappho's only surviving complete poem.
(A detailed introduction to Sappho and her world is included in the article SAPPHO under the TRANSLATIONS index on the main index page. The following is the text/commentary section of that longer treatment. The Greek text is available at that location.) This poem is the only complete one we have from the several volumes of Sappho's poetry which were circulating as late as the 8th c.. A.D. It has always been prized as remarkably sensitive and elegant, but there are dimensions which I believe have not been explored or interpretated. Let me give you first the text in Roman letters for those who do not read Greek, so they can at least read the words aloud and get their general sound. The translation which follows is necessary since Sappho's Aeolic dialect is not the normal Attic Greek you learn in in school, and I believe some help is called for. Of course this translation loses immense detail, specifically the long and short vowels which make a real difference in Greek. There is no initial aspiration -h- in Aeolic so that no problem. The letters -ch- are of course more like -kh-, and the exact pronunciation of the consonants is not exactly known after the passage of two and a half millennia, not surprisingly. The accents which are printed in modern texts may not be the same as Aeolic intonation, but modern Classicists ignore the musical pitches completely, which again removes a critical part of Sappho's lyric poetry. But the poem is readable, singable, soundable as it is, with some imagination.

Sappho (610 - 580 BC) Sappho war eine Aristokratentochter, sie wurde zwischen 630 und 612 vor Christus auf der ägäischen Insel Lesbos geboren. Es war eine Zeit des Wandels, die griechische Demokratie stand kurz vor ihrer Geburtststunde, und Sappho war mittendrin: Sie heiratete einen reichen Kaufmann, mit dem sie eine Tochter, Cleis, hatte, und da sie niemals Geldsorgen hatte, konnte sie so leben, wie es ihr gefiel. Und es gefielt ihr, sich den schönen Künsten zu widmen. Lesbos war dafür das ideale Surrounding, denn es war zu ihrer Zeit ein soziales und kulturelles Zentrum des alten Griechenland. Schon zu ihren Lebzeiten erlangte Sapphos ungewöhnlicher Stil viel Ruhm. Plato nannte sie später "Die zehnte Muse" Um ihr Liebesleben ranken sich viele Mythen. Am wahrscheinlichsten ist wohl, daß sie sowohl weibliche als auch männliche Liebschaften hatte. Das war in Lesbos durchaus nicht ungewöhnlich, ebenso wenig wie ein nicht sehr monogamer Lebensstil. Die Künstler von Lesbos - unter ihnen einige Frauen - formierten sich in kulturellen und literarischen Zirkeln, denen auch Sappho angehörte. Von Sapphos 9 poetischen Werken sind nur noch Fragmente erhalten. Ihr Einfluß durch die jahrhunderte ist unumstritten. Als griechische Lyrikerin wird sie heute noch als die erste weibliche Poetin angesehen. Wegen ihrer durchaus freizügigen und persönlichen Texte hat sie heute noch einen ikonenhaften Status als Schutzpatronin lesbischer Liebe, wie akkurat auch immer diese Einschätzung sein mag. Sie selbst allerdings hatte mit Sicherheit Recht, als sie über dich und ihre Bewunderer einmal sagte:"Ich glaube, irgendjemand wird sich in einer anderen Zeit an uns erinnern".

(in Sappho: A New Translation, by Mary Barnard) Little is known for certain of Sappho's life, although there are many anecdotes. Her parents were of aristocratic origin. Sappho may have been born in 612 B.C. at Eresus, one of the towns of Lesbos. Her father was Scamandronymus, or according to some sources his name was Scamander. She had three brothers, Erigyius, Larichus and Charaxus, the eldest, who was a merchant. He sailed to Egypt with a cargo of wine. There he was involved with a local slavewoman named Doricha and purchased her freedom. Sappho disapproved the affair. She was more fond of the young Larichus; he poured the wine at council banquets. As a child, at some date between 604 and 595

For years Amsterdam has proved quite a disappointment to both lesbian visitors to the city and those who live here. While the men's gay scene has always provoked a kids in a candystore response, there has been an absolute dirth of lesbian bars and activities. There have been just two major women's bars (both welcoming to men), one lesbian-run mixed bar-restaurant, one lesbian club and just a handful of one-off women's parties.
However, fortunately, the city has been undergoing somewhat of a lesbian renaissance in the past few months. Firstly, the VENUS FREAKS CREW SAPPHO opened on the Vijzelstraat which is just the space I've been waiting for. It's artistic, spacious and trendy (without being pretentious). Located a short walk from the Rembrandtplein and Leidseplein, it attracts a mixed, arty clientele during the week, but is women-only on Friday nights (when DJs play), though male friends are welcome.
