Of fine wine, incense and spices: The unstable masculine hegemony of the books of chronicles

Boer, Roland


A hint of squashy vulnerability appeared in my consideration of the testicular logic of biblical Hebrew, and in my study of the apparent masculine vigor of the scribal prophets I happened upon the deep and self-serving impotence of that penile production. Now, as we turn to the books of Chronicles, I engage in a full-frontal assessment not merely of theories of masculinity but also of the chronic instability of masculine hegemony in that section of the Hebrew Bible.
