Bodies, Borders, Believers: Ancient Texts and Present Conversations
This stimulating collection of essays by prominent scholars honours Turid Karlsen Seim, the prominent Norwegian theologian.
Bodies, Borders, Believers brings together biblical scholars, ecumenical theologians, archaeologists, classicists, art historians, and church historians to probe the past and its reception in the present. The contributions discuss Seim’s broad research interests, covering such themes as gender analysis, bodily practices, and ecumenical dialogue. Many scholarly traditions, theoretical orientations and methodological approaches are represented through the international group of contributors, making this book an interdisciplinary and border-crossing endeavour.
