Overview

This series brings to a wide audience important new discoveries concerning relationships of women and men in the Bible, ancient Israel, early Judaism, and early Christianity. The books explore the role of gender within the biblical tradition and document its continuing influence on subsequent life and thought. The books emphasize literary and historical methods as well as anthropological, archaeological, and linguistic approaches to biblical characters, gendered imagery, and the history of biblical interpretation. The books are based on thorough scholarship and can be read with pleasure by all serious readers.

This important collection draws together fascinating recent studies by a leading European scholar of aspects of the New Testament of special interest to women. These essays, translated for the first time, will deepen feminist scholarship in the English-speaking world. Includes insightful depictions of the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene, and the women at Jesus' grave.
