Item description for Mine and Yours Are Hers: Retrieving Women's History from Rabbinic Literature (Arbeiten Zur Geschichte Des Antiken Judentums Und Des Urchristentums, Bd. 41.) by Tal Ilan...
This volume discusses the interaction between history, rabbinic literature and feminist studies. It suggests a post-literary approach, that is, the book examines the residue of the texts after these have been analyzed and dissected by literary critics. The text is mainly concerned with women's history, adopting a number of assumptions of feminist criticism about the androcentric nature of all ancient texts, and approaches them with due suspicion. The Rabbis treated women differently from men resulting in the former's marginalization and manipulation by the texts. However this created an ironic situation, argues the author, whereby principles useful for the recovery of historical information on women, are useless when applied to men. This study describes such principles and demonstrates them with the help of many examples.
