Women Healing/Healing Women book.

Women Healing/Healing Women book.

Women healers were honoured in inscriptions and named by medical writers, and were familiar enough to be stereotyped in plays and other writings. What emerges by the first century of the Common Era is a world in which women functioned as healers but where healing becomes a contested site for gender relations. By the time the gospels are written the place of women as healers is effectively erased.

Women Healing/Healing Women: The Genderisation of Healing in Early Christianity (BibleWorld) by Elaine .

Celia Deane-Drummond - University of Notre Dame This book is an example of fine scholarship at its very best: two erudite scholars from different disciplines - New Testament studies and philosophical theology - combine their talents in a joint work on Jesus’ healing ministry and its significance for contemporary theology. This fascinating and richly diverse text covers many topics connected with healing, but perhaps is most persuasive because it pushes readers beyond their current experience.

The impetus for this book was the startling realization that within early Christianity, which is characterized by healing, no women are explicitly commissioned to heal. The work begins with a search for the women who were healers in the Graeco-Roman world of the late Hellenistic and early Roman period, finding them honoured in inscriptions, named by medical writers, and stereotyped by playwrights and other literateurs. What emerges by the first century of the Common Era, is a world in which women functioned as healers as well as healed and that healing was a site of contestation in relation to gender. The interpretive lens brought to bear on the wide range of sources used in this study is a multi-dimensional one informed by feminism, post-colonialism and ecological studies. The methodology is socio-rhetorical drawing on tools from medical anthropology. The turning of the multi-dimensional lens and these tools on the gospels, informed by the context constructed in the first part of the study, enables new interpretations of the stories of women healing to emerge. A woman pours out healing ointment; healed women bear on their bodies the language describing Jesus and the stereotyped demon-possessed women of the Lukan gospel may, indeed, be healers.
