Margaret A. Farley, a Catholic nun and former Yale Divinity School ethicist, has been awarded the Grawemeyer Award in Religion by the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary and the University of Louisville. A member of the Sisters of Mercy, Farley received the award for her book Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics, which was called “an important message in light of all the confusion surrounding sexuality today.” Louisville seminary professor Susan Garrett, who directs the award program, said Farley’s work draws “clear and compelling guidelines from Christian tradition on what makes love ‘just.’” Farley, the first woman to teach full-time at Yale Divinity School (1971-2007), is past president of the Society of Christian Ethics and the Catholic Theological Society of America.
