Item Description...
This brief study provides a clear an succinct overview of the role women played in ancient Israelite religion. Meyers points out that too many scholars have left women out of the picture of Israelite religion all together, and that others have treated them simply as part of "non-orthodox" official religion. The author stresses the diversity of religious practices in ancient Israel and that we should not be misled by the ancient editors of the biblical material who were urban elite males. This means taking in to account "magic" as an important avenue of inquiry, as well as "practices" (not just beliefs). Archaeology provides other clues, such as figurines of female deities; pillar-figurines; amulets; and "cultic assemblages" of numerous lamps, beads, shells, rattles, and inscriptions. Ethnohistory provides insights into the biblical text, especially into questions of fertility and birth rites, naming, circumcision, protective jewelry, and exorcisms.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a short and lacking treatment  Aug 28, 2007
Carol Myers' treatment of ancient Israelite domestic, mainly female religion in Households and Holiness suffers from too much compression of its subject matter. Myers meant this to be a short treatment, but it is entirely too short to do justice to the wealth of ideas present. At best, this work can be the jumping off point for further research into introductory material on ancient Israelite domestic religion.
It's a very small short book with an original premise.   Dec 21, 2006
Meyers maintains that many of women's ancient religious practices took place in the home not the temples and have therefore been overlooked by Biblical scholars. In order to get an accurate picture of the religious lives of ancient Hebrew women one must take into account all aspects of archeology, ethnography, and anthropology as well as Biblical texts and put them into context.
