Deborah Savage, Ph. D., is a member of the faculty at the St. Paul Seminary School of Divinity at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota where she teaches philosophy and theology and also serves as the Director of two Master’s Degree Programs: the Masters in Pastoral Ministry and the Masters in Religious Education. She received her Doctorate in Religious Studies from Marquette University in 2005; her degree is in both theology and philosophy. Dr. Savage is the co-founder and director of the Siena Symposium for Women, Family and Culture, an interdisciplinary think tank at UST, organized to respond to John Paul II’s call for a new and explicitly Christian feminism. Her more recent publications include “The Nature of Woman in Relation to Man: Genesis 1 and 2 Through the Lens of the Metaphysical Anthropology of St. Thomas Aquinas,” and “At the Heart of the Matter: Lived Experience in John Paul II’s Account of the Person.” The theory she has developed concerning the “masculine genius” in light of the complementarity of man and woman was published as “The Genius of Man” in a collection of essays. She is currently at work on a book entitled “Woman and Man” for formal consideration by Catholic University if America Press. Before her decision to pursue a doctorate, Deborah worked for over 25 years in the business sector, holding a variety of positions primarily in manufacturing organizations and taught in the College of Business at the University of St. Thomas for several years.
