Daughter Zion, Mother Zion: Gender, Space, and the Sacred in Ancient Israel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this innovative and important work Christl M. Maier argues that the way Israelites in the exilic and post-exilic periods spoke of Jerusalem as gendered space??????a female city??????helps us trace reactions to the crisis of exile and the emergence of a new national-religious identity. Taking up the Zion tradition in Isaiah of Jerusalem, Jeremiah, Hosea, Ezekiel, and Lamentations, Maier explores motifs of Jerusalem as mother, daughter, bride, whore, and injured victim. Her interpretation of gendered metaphors also helps us understand contemporary political and religious constructions of gender and political power.

Synopsis:

* A nuanced analysis of Israel's use of gender to respond to national crisis * The role of power in the construction of gender and space * Uses the latest social-science and anthropological methods
