Inhaltsangabe: Contemporary scholars have sharply disagreed over the importance of the loquacious women of "Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum," Using the methods of contemporary Cognitive Linguistics, "Ideology and Metaphor" develops a systematic, replicable reading of the text and its characters, showing how Pseudo-Philo uses these women's stories to articulate the text's theology and ideology. The analysis also explores how the author redefines the term mother in order to sanction the female authority to interpret and instruct. The conceptual blends that compose the text's distinctive and sometimes dissonant metaphors are analyzed in detail. This monograph also explores how a re-written Bible establishes its authority and awards authority to specific characters and how rhetorical and narrative methodologies fit within cognitive linguistics.
Über den Autor: Mary Therese DesCamp, M.Div., Ph.D. (2004) in Hebrew Scripture, Graduate Theological Union, is an independent scholar engaged in the application of Cognitive Linguistics to biblical texts. She writes and researches from her home in the Kootenay Mountains of British Columbia.
