- Brief Synopsis:
- These groundbreaking essays within the burgeoning field of disability studies explore the use of the conceptual category "disability" in biblical and Near Eastern texts and examine how conceptions of disability become a means of narrating, interpreting, and organizing human life.
- Long Synopsis:
- Contributors from biblical studies and from the nascent discipline of disability studies draw on recent articulations of critical disability theory to interrogate the use of disability as a conceptual category in biblical and other Near Eastern texts, and in scholarly interpretations of these texts. Among the perspectives they offer are: deformity and disability in Greece and Rome, the normate hermeneutic and interpretations of disability within the Yahwistic narratives, and disability and redemption in biblical literature.
