Finding New Allies in the Unlikely Conversation Between Feminist Critics and Ancient Commentators

Finding New Allies in the Unlikely Conversation Between Feminist Critics and Ancient Commentators by CBE International

From John Thompson. It is often supposed that traditional exegesis has been unremittingly patriarchal and therefore unfriendly to women's dignity, their mistreatment and marginalization, and their contributions to Christian ministry. This lecture covers an array of exegetical views expressed by Christian commentators of the ancient, medieval, and Reformation eras, and how their perspectives and concerns can be surprisingly similar to the concerns of feminist and womanist critics today.
