Reading the Silences of Scripture
This study takes its origins from two impulses. On the one hand, it is common for feminist and most modern biblical scholars to dismiss precritical commentators as also “uncritical” by the standards of today; on the other hand, the author's previous research has consistently found surprisingly pertinent questions and insights among these precritical interpreters. The purpose of this book is therefore to see whether traditional commentators have properly been deemed irrelevant to current discussions of gender and biblical exegesis, or whether they should be recalled and consulted. The introduction also briefly explains the method of the history of exegesis and how it will be applied to this study.
