Resurrecting Erotic Transgression : Subjecting Ambiguity in Theology Hardback

Part of the Gender, Theology and Spirituality series


'Resurrecting Erotic Transgression' presents a feminist theological methodology based on the work of Julia Kristeva.

This methodology provides the means for 'subjecting ambiguity', bringing to theology a recognition of the multiplicity of language and identity.

A method of 'poetic reading' is proposed with a three stage process: articulation of the dualities present in and around a focal discourse; subversion of these dualities through a range of strategies; and the re-presentation of the discourse emphasising its ambiguous nature.

The hermeneutical method of 'poetic reading' is explored in relation to three biblical texts and an image of the 'otherness' of God as whore.
