don't reblog i don't want any trouble and also disclaimer that i am not at all trying to make a defence of western christianity, with this ‒ as a postcolonial subject, as a bi and trans person, and as a cult survivor, i genuinely have no interest in doing that trust me ‒ but there's an odd trend i notice in posts that criticise christianity on here. that seems to work from the premise that christian exegeses don't exist and biblical literalism is the norm rather than 1 (one) approach to scripture. and to me that's v telling that these posts come from americans whose main exposure to christianity is american evangelicalism, american baptist and calvinist tradition and… are a v limited view of the actual scope of christian history and philosophy. again, not defending anything, i just sometimes wish people would say "catholicism", "evangelicalism", and or "western christianity" when that's what they mean

“...Childbirth rituals sanctified a process that was hidden, uncertain, and beyond the control of the king, yet necessary to the political survival of the realm. These rituals also reflected the pre-Reformation Catholic understanding of childbirth, which held the female body’s role in reproduction and childbirth as sacred. Childbirth was positively associated with the holy motherhood of the Virgin Mary and thus worthy of special religious protection, such as the relics used to help women, including queens, in labour.
In practice, pregnancy and childbirth were uncertain and tense experiences for early modern women and had the potential to go very wrong for a variety of reasons. Childbirth rituals, such as confinements that limited access to the mother, were in part attempts to control the experience as much as humanly possible in an effort to protect the mother and child.
...When a woman was ready to leave her confinement, she would officially re-enter normal life through the ceremony of churching. Churching was a ritual of purification and thanksgiving that celebrated a woman’s return to public life after childbirth. Churching was a uniquely female-centered public ritual that was practiced by nearly all new mothers in the pre-Reformation period, including queens.
Gale McMurray Gibson has argued that churching was ‘woman’s theatre’ that celebrated women’s bodies, as the centre of the ritual was the woman’s body, and men (even priests) were very much on the margins. Additionally, only women who bore legitimate children could be churched, and thus it became a symbol of legitimacy and acceptance by the community of the validity of the birth itself.”
- Michelle L. Beer, “Material Magnificence.” in Queenship at the Renaissance Courts of Britain
