      Dr. Carol Meyers: The Ancient Gender Gap

      Dr. Carol Meyers: The Ancient Gender Gap - The Bible, Archaeology and Israelite Women Wednesday, November 4 10:00 AM EST A virtual series Free Time and again, scholars have found stark differences between the images of women in standard texts and information from other sources, and ancient Israel is no exception when we glean our view of Israelite women from archaeology as well as the Bible. Using both these sources, Dr. Meyers will provide a glimpse into women’s roles in both household economy and in household religion, offering some intriguing conclusions about women’s power. Dr. Carol Meyers is the Mary Grace Wilson Professor in the Department of Religion at Duke University, director of Duke’s graduate program in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and associate director of the Women’s Studies Program. Among her many publications is her landmark book on women in ancient Israel, Rediscovering Eve. About the Series: HOT TOPICS IN BIBLICAL ARCHAEOLOGY For centuries, archaeologists have raided ancient tombs, explored caves, unearthed watercourses, sifted through rubble, measured skulls, romanced stones and reconstructed pots from tiny shards in their quest to unlock the riddles of biblical times. In this series, eight distinguished biblical archaeologists will discuss their detective work: the questions they ask; the finds they’ve uncovered; the technology they employ that adds science to spades and brushes; their interpretation of evidence; their struggle against fake news, both ancient and modern; and the tightrope they walk between belief in the Bible and evidence.
