Fathers and Daughters in the Hebrew Bible

Johanna Stiebert

  • Most comprehensive assessment of Hebrew Bible father-daughter depictions to date
  • Contextualizes and re-evaluates widely discussed father-daughter narratives within the broad spectrum of other father-daughter accounts that have received far less scholarly attention
  • Examines not only father-daughter narratives but also father-daughter terminology, metaphors, myths, and legal texts
  • Provides a careful assessment of the critical approaches that dominate father-daughter discussions; chief among them feminist criticism - but also psychoanalytic, and comparative social-scientific methods
  • Makes important links with scholarly literature from Classical Studies
