The special issue Hermeneutics of feminine, published by the Journal Pístis & Praxis (Web of Science | Qualis A2), was organized by Professors Luísa Almendra (CITER UCP), Teresa Bartolomei (CITER UCP), Ceci Maria Costa Baptista Mariani (PUC Camp) and Jaci de Fátima Souza Candiotto (PUC PR). It intends to enrich the debate on this theme, as it involves approaches from diverse and plural perspectives, such as the philosophical, theological, literary, psychological, social-political, promoting and encouraging the interlocution between them. Many of the works presented here are the result of the 1st International Colloquium "Hermeneutics of Feminine",  held on January 28 and 29, 2020, at the Universidade Católica Portuguesa (UCP), in Lisbon, having been organized by the Research Center Theology and Religious Studies (CITER - UCP) in partnership with Praxis - Center for Philosophy, Politics and Culture (University of Évora), the Graduate Program of Human Rights and Public Policies , the Graduate Progrma of Theology, both at Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Paraná (PUC PR) and with the Graduate Program in Religious Studies at Pontifícia Universidade Católica de Campinas (PUC Camp).

The publication of this special issue Hermeneutics of Feminine is the result of the Women and Religion Project of CITER and of the deepening and maturation of the themes over a year of work since the first impressions exchanged in the colloquium homonymous. The result is 23 articles from different international research institutions dedicated to an archaeological and interdisciplinary effort to recover the female contribution in the field of culture and religion.
