Price: AU$59.99
Description: The Hebrew Bible and art reside at the core of this book, which analyzes the iconographic representation of several women of the Bible. The contributors consider the ways the biblical texts had been read and understood throughout time and the means by which they were represented.

Drawing upon disciplines such as theology, philology or history of art, the essays provide a cross-sectional, plural and rich approach. Through its focus upon iconographic representation, numerous visual cultures of the last millennium are explored, and special emphasis is placed upon several biblical women such as Bathsheba, Moses' mother, the Pharaoh's Daughter, Ruth, Naomi and Deborah, and their lasting influence upon Western art and culture.

This book pursues an understanding of the history of the transmission and reception of the Bible in general, and of the women of the Old Testament in particular.
