Women and the Word: (1) Feminist Theology; (2) Biblical Philology

Rosemary Radford Ruether speaks about feminist theology, which developed as a movement in the 1960s but has much older roots. She describes feminist theology as a critique of male-centered theology that aims for a rereading of biblical texts to emphasize gender equality.

In the second segment [14:15], William Hallo describes his research and study entitled “The Origins of Modern Institutions in the Ancient Near East.” He emphasizes the emergence of writing, which has left us with monumental histories of those civilizations.

At the time of these interviews, Ruether was a professor at Garrett New Evangelical Theological Seminary.

Hallo, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1987-88), was professor of Near Eastern languages at Yale University.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
