EFTHIMIADIS-KEITH, Helen. The role of Achior in Judith - an autobiographical response to The Enemy is Within. Old testam. essays [online]. 2013, vol.26, n.3, pp.642-662. ISSN 2312-3621.
This article provides an autobiographical response to the author's 2004 monograph on Judith focused through the character of Achior. It briefly outlines Jung's concept of individuation and the author's understanding of autobiographic biblical criticism. The article then addresses the author's original findings on Achior and concludes with a personal and academic response, noting particularly new insights and the role that her academic work has played in her own individuation / transformation.
