Abstract: Women have been marginalized in different contexts and situations. Religion, and to be more specific Catholicism, is a tradition that has divided men and women but more importantly women themselves as they represent the dichotomy of good and evil. Michèle Roberts’s heroines are inspired through biblical characters who will replace the binary system of being for dualities and pluralities in the same woman as part of their identities. This paper considers the feminist procedure of Adrienne Rich’s re-visioning, re-imagining and re-writing, Julia Kristeva’s notion of abjection plus a touch of Bakhtinian ‘open bodies’ in the light of Catholic myths. The conclusion of this essay aims to present and celebrate Rob-erts’s heroines in relation to their sexuality and religion
