Abstract

VENTER, Philip P.. The woman Wisdom, God, and ecojustice: ideology of the body in Proverbs 8:1-9:18. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2009, vol.65, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0259-9422.

This article examines the ideology of the body, specifically in terms of the gender of Wisdom and God, from an ecojustice perspective. Femininity within a God construct could contribute to a value system that incorporates compassion, interrelatedness and mutual care. In Proverbs 8:1- 9:18, however, the woman Wisdom does not represent an ecofriendly construct, but simply enhances and supports the patriarchal, masculine values incorporated in the God Yahweh.

Keywords : Spreuke; Godskonstrukte; kosmologiese terminologie; skeppingswerke; genderpolarisasie.
