This chapter recounts the reception of Irigaray's work by feminist scholars in its different phases. It evaluates the impact of the principal elements of Irigaray's work that are concerned with women and religion. It undertakes a survey of the way that Irigaray has influenced certain women philosophers, both religious and secular, and their responses to her work. Irigaray's work, particularly those explorations concerned with sexual difference, has been the subject of diverse reactions—both complimentary and unsympathetic. In religious studies, it also prompted women to develop their own critical analyses and creative experimentations, especially in reaction to the traditional formulas of the philosophy of religion. The chapter concludes by offering insight into the significance of Irigaray's contributions, particularly for scholars in the study of religion.
