$231.00

Hardback
A literary and anthropological study of the structure and social presuppositions of several biblical narratives in which sexual activity plays a role. The interest in sexual activity is related to male struggles for honour and power.

- Publisher
In this original work, Stone studies the structure and social presuppositions of several narratives from the Deuteronomistic History in which sexual activity plays a significant role. Both narratological and anthropological tools are utilized in the textual analysis. Stone interestingly notes the link between sexual activity, gender and prestige structures; the emphasis on male contest and female chastity discussed by anthropologists of honour and shame; and the role of the exchange of women in relations between men. In each story, sexual practice is primarily related to male struggles for honour and power.
