In this post, I want to sum up the conclusions that I have arrived at in my series of posts on issues of gender and sexuality in the Christian and Catholic tradition from the New Testament to the period prior to Vatican II.

This post looks at ideas about gender that are found in the New Testament and the Fathers. I am interpreting "patristic" somewhat loosely to cover the period up to Aquinas.
In this post, I want to look at a couple of sources for traditional Catholic teaching on gender roles - one a papal encyclical from the late 19th century and the other a theological text from the early 20th century.
This translated extract from J.-P. Gury's Compendium Theologiae Moralis (1862) shows the developed Catholic teaching on the avoidance of sexual temptations that prevailed between the Council of Trent and Vatican II.
