Afterlives of Biblical Women in Art, Literature, & Culture
The women of the Bible have lived on outside the Bible, reflected in art, music, literature, and popular culture. Their stories have provided a lens through which to categorize, exhort, and chastise women ever since. Examine the afterlives of Eve, Mary, Hagar, Deborah, Ruth, Mary Magdalene, Judith, Susanna, and others. Find out why, why, why Delilah became the subject of a popular song. In exploring the historical reflections of biblical women, consider how the mirror held up to these women became distorted and at what cost.Register Now
