Check out our new class, “Strange Bedfellows in the Bible,” taught by Dr. Lynne Heller!
Explore the ironic role reversals in the pairing of male and female figures, both human and divine, in biblical and apocryphal narratives. Politics, love, sex and death frame the lives of male and female lovers and mothers in biblical patriarchal society. As fluid boundaries are drawn between battlefield and bedroom, what happens when violence becomes the weapon of virtue? Who are the villains? The virgins? The vixens? Join us in February to explore these issues and more.
