Walk in the Ways of Wisdom: Essay in Honor of Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza by Shelly Matthews, Melanie Johnson-DeBaufre, Cynthia Briggs Kittredge



When she published In Memory of Her: A Feminist Theological Reconstruction of Christian Origins in 1983, Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza revolutionized the world of New Testament studies. She offered in that book a method for interpreting early Christian history that recovers the role of women in pre-Pauline Christian communities. She then painted a portrait of the early Christian ekklesia of women as a point of departure for a feminist biblical spirituality. Later works engaged subjects such as hermeneutics, the book of Revelation, and rhetoric and ethics.The editors of this Festschrift all studied with Schüssler Fiorenza at the Harvard Divinity School and collected these essays to honor the leading feminist New Testament scholar in the world.
