Rape Culture in the House of David

A Company of Men
  • By Barbara Thiede
Product Description

Rape Culture in the House of David: A Company of Men describes a biblical rape culture sustained and maintained by Yhwh and a host of men-from royal kings and princes to their relatives, counselors, generals, and servants.

This volume reveals that sexual violence in the house of David is not simply perpetrated by its most powerful men. Rather, in the pursuit of power, status, authority, and honor, men form alliances and networks that support the use and abuse of women's bodies and valorize sexualized violence against other men. The man who is most capable of sexual violence is Israel's ideal king.

Barbara Thiede deftly addresses the power and contemporary relevance of these narratives and argues that exposing and naming rape culture in biblical literature is essential-in social, economic, and political realms.

This is a meaningful feminist intervention in the field of biblical studies and is of great benefit to graduate students and scholars of religion, gender studies, and masculinity studies.
