This volume identifies many rabbinic rhetorical strategies applied to issues of sexuality, which is a societal and cultural construct. Satlow examines rabbinic discussions of incest, sex between Jews and Gentiles, non-marital sex, homoeroticism, non-procreative sex, and marital sexuality illustrating that there was no monolithic rabbinic view of sexuality.

Features:

  • Outlines differences between Palestinian and Babylonian rabbis
  • Discussion of methodological difficulties
  • Parallels with non-rabbinic early Jewish, Greek, and Roman texts

Michael L. Satlow is Professor of Religious Studies and Judaic Studies in the Program in Judaic Studies and Department of Religious Studies at Brown University. His most recent book is Creating Judaism: History, Tradition, Practice. He is on the board of Henoch and is a co-editor of the Brown Judaic Studies series.
