This booklet follows a reader’s good judgment of organization via a chain of overlapping constructs in biblical prescription of items prized and lofty—holy hair, unblemished beasts, sacred edibles, healthy wombs, pristine precincts, esteemed ethnicities and, as not likely because it turns out, dismembered contributors. completely intersectional in disposition, Bernon Lee uncovers not only the precariousness of the contrived dichotomies throughout the identity-building sacred texts, but in addition the complexities and contentions of a would-be decolonizing hermeneutic bristling with its personal tensions and temptations. This quantity is an intertextual odyssey via legislation and formality from impassioned positions fraught with ambivalence, reticence, and anxiety.
