Abstract

FISCHER, Stefan. Mental mapping in the admiration song in Song of Songs 7:2-7. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2019, vol.75, n.3, pp.1-7. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v75i3.4998.

Mental mapping is a method of interpreting with conceptual metaphors. This method is applied to the admiration song in Song of Songs 7:2-7. The song is interpreted in the context of a dance. For the purpose of interpretation, ancient Egyptian dance paintings and love poems are taken into account. The interpretation presents a methodological study that unmasks arbitrary exegesis and implausible interpretations. It discovers its subtle conceptual metaphors and shows a strategy for a comprehensible exegesis. As a side effect, the male chauvinism present in this song is deconstructed.

Keywords : Exegesis; Song of Songs; Methodology; Metaphor; Mapping.
