The shift in the practical position was made possible by a new approach to the interpretation of the Scriptural passages historically used as guides for establishing policy in regard to the question of women's rights in the church. I am not here attempting to be an exegete or a hermeneutician. The nature of this study is historical. I have attempted to report what happened, when it happened', and why it happened, an/to indicate the changes in the approach to .the passages involved which aid in understanding the shifts in practice which have occurred.
