Eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven


Eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven – The Catholic Church and Sexuality (original German title; Eunuchen für das Himmelreich – Katholische Kirche und Sexualität) is a philosophical book by the German theologian Uta Ranke-Heinemann, first published in 1988 and translated in 1990. The book is about how sexual morality is governed by celibates in the Catholic Church, which she criticizes as misogynous. While this represents a late 20th Century view, and remains broadly relevant, however in some areas material has dated, because early in the 21st century Pope Francis began to address some of the issues criticized in this work.The book's title comes from the Bible verse in Matthew 19:12, which could be translated as follows: 'For so: some are incapable of marriage from birth, some have been converted into it by men and some have made themselves as such for the sake of the kingdom of heaven.'
