Abstract [en]

The text is a revised version of a paper read at the International Meeting of the SBL in Berlin 2001, as part of the panel "Whence and Whither? Methodology and the Future of Biblical Studies".

The author approaches the issue of the relation between mainstream historical-critical biblical scholarship and feminist biblical schlarship from a historical perspective, with a passage in Emilia Fogelklou's autobiographical novel "Barhuvad" as her point of departure. In this passage, it is obvious that historical-critical approaches, which have rightly been subjected to severe critique by feminist scholars, also could be recieved as liberating by women in the early 20th Century. The author discusses how such studies of concrete historical examples of how women recieved and responded to historical-critical biblical scholarship can contribute to contemporary feminist biblical scholarship.
