BIBL 571/INDS 571

Silent No More: Women Interpreters of the Bible

This course is also offered as INDS 571

Course Description

Through the centuries, women—nuns, mothers, mystics, preachers, teachers, suffragists, and household managers—interpreted Scripture through their writings, art, and music. Their forgotten or neglected interpretations of the Bible deserve our attention. Examine how women have read and interpreted the Bible, beginning with the period of the early church. Encounter the writings of medieval visionaries, Renaissance exegetes, and both early modern and modern women. Explore these writings, focusing on women’s interpretations of Genesis 1–3 and Pauline texts, and consider their implications for faithful interpretation today.

What I love about Regent is that it’s a place for people who have questions about their ordinary lives. Not just academic theological questions, but questions about what it means to live the good life or be faithful. Not just a space for heady conversations but a place to wrestle with faith and a place where they can belong.” — Vivian Lee (MATS student)
