As the first major encyclopedia of its kind, The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Bible and Gender Studies (OEBGS) is the go-to source for scholars and students undertaking original research in the field. Extending the work of nineteenth and twentieth century feminist scholarship and more recent queer studies, the Encyclopedia seeks to advance the scholarly conversation by systematically exploring the ways in which gender is constructed in the diverse texts, cultures, and readers that constitute "the world of the Bible." With contributions from leading scholars in gender and biblical studies as well as contemporary gender theorists, classicists, archaeologists, and ancient historians, this comprehensive reference work reflects the diverse and interdisciplinary nature of the field and traces both historical and modern conceptions of gender and sexuality in the Bible. The two-volume Encyclopedia contains more than 160 entries ranging in length from 1,000 to 10,000 words. Each entry includes bibliographic references and suggestions for further reading, as well as a topical outline and index to aid in research. The OEBGS builds upon the pioneering work of biblically focused gender theorists to help guide and encourage further gendered discussions of the Bible.

The Bible, Gender, and Reception History: The Case of Job's Wife investigates the fleeting appearance in the Bible of Job's wife and its impact on the imaginations of readers throughout history. It begins by presenting key interpretive gaps in the biblical text concerning Job and his wife, explaining the way gender studies offers guiding principles with which the author engages a reception history of their marriage. After analyzing Job and his wife within medieval Christian theology of Eden, the author identifies ways in which Job's wife visually aligns with medieval images of Satan. The volume explores portrayals of Job and his wife in publications on marriage and gender roles in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, moving onto an investigation of William Blake's sharp artistic divergence from the common tradition in his representation of Job's wife as a shrew. In the exploration of societal portrayals of Job and his Wife throughout history, this book discovers how arguments about marriage intertwine with not only gender roles, but also, with political, social, and historical movements.

Die Moabiter Geschichte Und Kultur Eines Ostjordanischen Volkes Im 1 Jahrtausend V Chr

Der Autor bespricht in seiner Studie alle bekannten literarischen Quellen zu Moab aus dem 1. Jahrtausend v.Chr. Die Texte aus Moab selbst werden eingehend untersucht. Ausserdem werden die Notizen aus agyptischen und neuassyrischen Quellen sowie das Alte Testament ausgewertet. Uber den Umweg der Sihon-Tradition haben die biblischen Autoren Moab aus dem nordlichen in den sudlichen Landesteil verlagert. Das eigentliche Kernland Moabs war aber zu allen Zeiten nordlich des Arnon. Schliesslich werden die archaologischen Daten fur eine Rekonstruktion der Geschichte Moabs im 1. Jahrtausend v.Chr. herangezogen.Der Durchgang durch die Quellen zeigt, dass ab dem 9. Jahrhundert v. Chr. im nordlichen Moab nationalstaatliche Tendenzen auszumachen sind. Die verschiedenen Ethnien im Gebiet von Moab wurden in der Folgezeit geeint. Archaologisch zeigt sich, dass die Besiedlung des sudlichen Moabs vermutlich von einer starken Zentralmacht im Norden organisiert wurde. Erst nach dem Verlust der Nationalstaatlichkeit erodiert auch das Zusammengehorigkeitsgefuhl der Bewohner. Eine staatlich verfasste Gesellschaft hat es ab der persischen Zeit in Moab fur lange Zeit nicht mehr gegeben.
