Reviews - What do customers think about Integrating Women into Second Temple History?

Good for Advanced Study  Jan 5, 2008
Tal Ilan scours the literary and archaeological sources for insight into the lives of women mentioned in Josephus, the Mishnah and other relevant sources. For example, the royal Hasmonean Mariamme is mentioned, along with Esther/Judith/Susanna, a Judean named Julia Crispina, Beruriah, Queen Shelamzion Alexandra, etc. She also discusses the attitude of men towards women as evidenced in various documents, such as Ben Sira, Josephus and Nicolaus. When possible, she applies those conclusions to the lives of everyday women.

The scholarship is reliable enough that I have ordered another book by Ilan on the image and status of women in Second Temple Judaism, but most related, scholarly books I read are easier to follow and draw clearer conclusions. For example, she often omits the English translation when using a Greek word, and, although she does admit the scantiness of the evidence frequently, occasionally jumps to conclusions. In addition, she leaves out phrases or sentences reminding the reader what a scholar or source indicated when it comes up in later parts of the chapter. This is very frustrating!

For other books on women in Jesus' time, see my this site Listmania list on 'Women in Jesus' Time.' You can find it by clicking 'Emily Jamison' above, and scrolling down to my Listmania section.
