Embodied Temporalities

Health, Illness, and the Matter of Feminist Biblical Interpretation

(p.454) Chapter 25 Embodied Temporalities
The Bible and Feminism

Denise K. Buell

Oxford University Press

This chapter aims to expand intersectional feminism temporally and beyond ‘the human’. By offering both positive and negative resources in early Christian traditions, those of us with expertise in ancient Christian materials using feminist lenses can engage with and contribute to current discussions in contemporary science and critical theory, especially feminist materialisms, that seek to transform our understandings of and practices of humanness. Specifically, this essay juxtaposes some ancient and contemporary ways of understanding health as well as practices aimed to treat conditions viewed as illness to suggest some of the benefits of engaging in cross-temporal feminisms. Moreover, the chapter suggests ways that feminist biblical interpretation can benefit from a materialist perspective, both via ancient materiality and current feminist materialisms
