Zoom Event: ‘Woman symbol and women agents: Proverbs 31 and biblical womanhood – A Conversation@theRRC with Esther Zarifi
Today there is a rise in both Christian feminism and conservatism, with each appealing to scripture for support and inspiration. In this Conversation@theRRC Esther Zarifi, (winner of the Leonard Hassé Memorial Prize for her MA Dissertation on Proverbs 31) will be discussing how we might read and interpret Proverbs 31 in the light of these contemporary tensions. Is Psalm 31 allegory, metaphor or modelling? How might we understand woman as symbol and/or agent? And why does this matter for women (and men) today?
