The Body in Biblical, Christian and Jewish Texts

Full Product Description

The body is an entity on which religious ideology is printed. Thus it is frequently a subject of interest, anxiety, prescription and regulation in both the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament, as well as in early Christian and Jewish writings. Issues such as the body's age, purity, sickness, ability, gender, sexual actions, marking, clothing, modesty or placement can revolve around what the body is and is not supposed to be or do. The Body in Biblical, Christian and Jewish Texts comprises a range of inter-disciplinary and creative explorations of the body as it is described and defined in religious literature, with chapters largely written by new scholars with fresh perspectives. This is a subject with wide and important repercussions in diverse cultural contexts today.

The Body in Biblical, Christian and Jewish Texts was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in December 2015. The ISBN for The Body in Biblical, Christian and Jewish Texts is 9780567666079.
