Her name is Dinah. In the Bible, her life is only hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the more familiar chapters of the Book of Genesis that are about her father, Jacob, and his dozen sons. Told in Dinah's voice, this novel reveals the traditions and turmoils of ancient womanhood-the world of the red tent. It begins with the story of her mothers-Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah-the four wives of Jacob. They love Dinah and give her gifts that are to sustain her through a damaged youth, a calling to midwifery, and a new home in a foreign land. Dinah's story reaches out from a remarkable period of early history and creates an intimate, immediate connection. Deeply affecting, The Red Tent combines rich storytelling with a valuable achievement in modern fiction: a new view of Biblical women's society.

Die These der „Feminisierung der Religion“ im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert, entstanden in den 1970er Jahren in den USA und seit den 1980er Jahren im deutschen Sprachraum rezipiert, hat eine rege Forschungsdiskussion ausgelöst. Als Reaktion auf die „Feminisierungsprozesse“ soll es zu Remaskulinisierungsvorgängen besonders in den christlichen Konfessionen, vor allem ab dem beginnenden 20. Jahrhundert, gekommen sein. Ein internationales und interreligiöses ausgerichtetes Forschungskolloquium an der Universität Graz, an dem renommierte Wissenschaftler und Wissenschaftlerinnen aus Europa und Amerika teilgenommen haben, hat sich mit den aktuellen Forschungsdiskussionen um die „Feminisierung“ und „Maskulinisierung der Religion“ auseinandergesetzt. Der vorliegende Band vereint detailreiche Studien von Autorinnen und Autoren, verschiedene Länder, christliche Konfessionen, Judentum und Islam betreffend.

Das lange 19. Jahrhundert, von der Französischen Revolution bis zum Ersten Weltkrieg, zeichnet sich durch das Nebeneinander konträrer Entwicklungen aus. Dies wirkt sich auch auf die Bibelrezeption und -auslegung aus. Während sich Frauen z. B. in England und Amerika als Wissenschaftlerinnen an der Entwicklung und Verbreitung der historisch-kritischen Exegese beteiligten, hatten Frauen in Spanien, Italien oder Russland oft nur unter großen Schwierigkeiten Zugang zur Bibel. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes beleuchten eine Vielzahl von Regionen und konfessionellen Orientierungen, wie italienische Waldenserinnen, russische orthodoxe Nonnen und Einsiedlerinnen, katholische Ordensfrauen, Jüdinnen und methodistische Predigerinnen aus Amerika, Evangelistinnen, Politikerinnen, Schriftstellerinnen und Künstlerinnen.

When one person dares to speak her truth, it challenges us all to live our own. With Red Hot and Holy, Sera Beak offers a provocative and intimate view of what it means to get up close and personal with the divine in modern times. With a rare combination of audacious wit, scholarly acumen, and tender vulnerability—vibrantly mixed with red wine, rock songs, tattoos, and erotic encounters—Sera candidly chronicles the highs and lows of her mystical journey. From the innocence of her childhood crush on God; through a whirlwind of torrid liaisons and bitter break-ups with Christianity, Buddhism, Sufism, Hinduism, and the New Age; and finally into committed monogamy with her own Red Hot and Holy Goddess, Sera shares transformative insights, encouraging us all to trust our unique path and ignite our own spiritual love affair. Sera Beak's luscious writing and renegade spiritual wisdom that slices through religious and new age dogma made her debut book The Red Book a breakout success. With Red Hot and Holy she offers a far more personal book—an illuminating, hilarious, and above all utterly honest portrait of the heart-opening process of mystical realization. This hot and holy book invites you to embrace your soul, unleash your true Self, and burn, baby, burn with divine love. Excerpt As a child, I was madly in love with God. Gaga for God. In grade school, I used to write “I (heart) God” at the top of all my homework assignments and in the margins of the notes I passed to my girlfriends about which boys we thought were cute. Next to The Little Princess, a children’s bible was kept on my bedside table for nightly reading. Miracles? Prophetic dreams? Angels? Healing the sick? Sign me up for those gigs! And every Thursday I believed J.C. dropped by my bedroom so I could ask him personal questions and tell him which sister was annoying me the most. I was magnetized to rosaries, prayers, and pyramids the way other kids were to doughnuts, MTV and the Cabbage Patch Kids, and every time I saw a religious figure (priest, nun, Buddhist monk, Hare Krishna) out in public, it would take an enormous amount of willpower not to stalk them. When Career Days at school would come around, my questionnaire would look a little something like this: Favorite subject? God Favorite hobby? God What do you want to be when you grow up? God (Okay, there was a brief time when I was six years old when the answer to that last question was “an albino.” I thought albinism would make me glow in the dark.) When I was a child, God was not a belief of a magical Santa Claus type. He was as real as my heart. I felt Him (inside me). I recognized Him (everywhere). I knew Him (personally). We hung out together, and I never wanted our rendezvous to stop. I only wanted us to draw closer. I assumed I was experiencing what many Catholics refer to as “the call” to be a priest, so I matter-of-factly informed my parish priests and Sunday school teachers of my future vocation. They laughed, patted my head, and told me I couldn’t have heard the call to be a priest because I had a vagina. Okay, they didn’t say that last part, but believe me, it was implied. They did tell me that only men were allowed to be priests because Jesus only had male disciples (to which Mary Magdalene juts out her left hip and slaps her round cheek with The Gospel of Mary Magdalene). But, of course, I could always be a nun.

Im bitterkalten Winter des Jahres 814 bringt die heidnische Frau des Dorfpriesters ein Mädchen zur Welt: Johanna. Sie wächst in einer Welt düsteren Aberglaubens auf, gegen den ihr Vater grausam zu Felde zieht; er läßt sogar die Hebamme des Ortes als Hexe verfolgen. Ein Mensch erkennt bei Johanna besondere Gaben: Aeskulapius, der Pädagoge aus dem fernen Byzanz, weist sie als einziges Mädchen in die Lehren der Philosophie und Logik ein. Doch beinahe wird Johanna ihr Wissensdurst zum Verhängnis. Nur der Ritter Gerold, ihr Freund und späterer Liebhaber, vermag sie vor dem grausamen Magister Odo zu bewahren. Nach einem verheerenden Feldzug der Normannen weiß sie endgültig: Frauen wie sie überleben in dieser Welt nicht. So geht sie als Mönch verkleidet ins Kloster Fulda. Als Medicus betritt sie Jahre später Rom, die Stadt des Papstes - wo die Wechselfälle des Schicksals sie schließlich selbst auf den heiligen Stuhl bringen.

Inform your students' lives with the richness of thousands of years of Jewish history, culture, and tradition. Teaching Jewish History tackles separately each of the key Jewish historical periods-Biblical, Rabbinic, Medieval, Early Modern, Enlightenment, and Modern, as well as the North American Jewish experience. The authors shift focus away from rote memorization of dates, names, and places, and instead examine each period through the lens of core historical concepts-the Diaspora, Covenant, acculturation, assimilation, and building community. History comes to life, helping students whether elementary, middle or high school, or adult develop a stronger Jewish identity. Teaching Jewish History gives teachers the tools to: ? Understand and explain the meaning of key concepts, terms, names, places, and events in each period of history. ? Identify and examine primary source documents and objects such as artifacts, diaries, sacred texts, photographs, and artwork. ? Conduct meaningful discussions of how the core concepts of Jewish history recur in and are relevant to each historical period. ? Develop a variety of activities including field trips, mock trials, oral histories, and role-playing activities. ? Place historical events on a timeline. ? Use additional historical and educational resources such as books, articles, videos, and Internet sites. Teaching Jewish History is an invaluable resource for the novice and the expert teacher of religious and day school children and for educators working with adults in synagogues, community centers, and family education programs.

The only woman in the Bible who is noted to have loved a man, Queen Michal was King David's childhood sweetheart, his first wife, and daughter of his great friend and greater enemy, King Saul. Married to and then abandoned by David at age 14, Michal is forced to marry him again and become his first queen ten years later. Thrown into transition and turmoil, Queen Michal resists the ambition and greed that have become integral to David's personality and kingship. Acting nobly as his queen, but refusing to compromise her soul, Michal is drawn in friendship to the women in the king's court. Among his concubines and mistresses is Bathsheba, who becomes the mother of David's son, Solomon. In Queenmaker, Michal emerges as a wise and loving woman whose female family sustains her and establishes the spiritual foundation of the entire kingdom. Queenmaker depicts in unforgettable detail the characters of one of the greatest periods in Biblical history-their public deed and private thoughts-and gives readers the court of the kings as only a woman could see it.

How might women in the Bible tell their stories if they were prompted to do so by Eve Ensler's controversial play, The Vagina Monologues? This collection imagines some answers to that question. The monologues herein are written by a variety of authors, including scholars, undergraduates, clergy, and laywomen; the content of the narratives reflects this variety, being at times faithful or irreverent, tragic or even funny. All seek to give twenty-first-century voices to women in canonical texts--including the Hebrew Bible, Deuterocanonical books, and New Testament--who are often speechless, nameless, or otherwise marginalized. Not for the faint of heart, these monologues not only end the silences but also add flesh and bone to characters whose experiences have too easily been justified, metaphorized, or altogether ignored. By naming the torn places in these women's stories, this volume invites readers to encounter both the biblical characters and their contemporary interpreters with an attitude of compassionate listening. Our hope is that such compassionate listening may contribute not only to more just readings of sacred texts, but also to the mission of Eve Ensler and V-Day to end global violence against women and girls.
