Book Information

   

Title: Metaphor and Ideology
Subtitle: Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum and Literary Methods through a Cognitive Lens
Written By: Mary Therese DesCamp
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=25963
Series Title: Biblical Interpretation Series, 87
Description:

Contemporary scholars have sharply disagreed over the importance of the
loquacious women of Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum. Using the methods of
contemporary Cognitive Linguistics, Ideology and Metaphor develops a
systematic, replicable reading of the text and its characters, showing how
Pseudo-Philo uses these women’s stories to articulate the text’s theology
and ideology. The analysis also explores how the author redefines the term
"mother" in order to sanction the female authority to interpret and
instruct. The conceptual blends that compose the text’s distinctive and
sometimes dissonant metaphors are analyzed in detail. This monograph also
explores how a re-written Bible establishes its authority and awards
authority to specific characters and how rhetorical and narrative
methodologies fit within cognitive linguistics.
