Actually there's been a lot written and thought about this lately. 
Check out Michael Camille's "Image on the Edge," e.g. for the marginal 
drawing (by a woman illuminator) of a nun picking the ripe fruit from 
the penis-tree. And then the response by Madeline Caviness...

Thing is, I still don't see the point of the argument, either 
way: "Faith" vs. "Money?" How about "Fish" vs. "Bicycle?" Something 
fishy, there.
