PRINCIPAL LECTURER

Dr. Callie Callon PhD

 

OVERVIEW

 

Many of the women who are portrayed in the bible are frequently either underdiscussed or misinterpreted in much of contemporary popular thought.  The primary focus of this course will be to address this in two ways.  First, by highlighting the accomplishments of women in both testaments who played authoritative and significant roles in Israelite and early Christian historical memory, ranging from Miriam to Phoebe.  Second, by a closer reading and re-examination of women whose narratives have been misunderstood or misrepresented – beginning with Eve and ending with Mary (not a prostitute!) Magdalene.
