Women Priests

(04-01-2014, 11:17 PM)spasiisochrani Wrote: This is nonsense, based on the fact that (1) the ceremonies involving the making of an abbess, canoness or nun were sometimes referred to as "ordination", (2) there were once such persons as "deaconesses", whose job was to assist at the baptism of adult women for the sake of propriety, and (3) there were women called "episcopae" and "presbyterae".  The reason for this is simple, as anyone knows who has any contact with Greek Christians.  The Greek priest is called "presbyter", and the "presbytera" is his wife.

Spasi, background please, since to my understanding Bishops have always been celibate.
