WOMEN OF THE OLD TESTAMENT
Their Stories, Their Characters, and Their Influence
Women do not always figure prominently in the writings of the Old Testament. Yet, sometimes they made their presence known, even in powerful ways.
Join us for a series of talks by Br. Aquinas Beale, O.P., on Thursday July 27th at 7:30pm in St Mary's Church Hall (5 Hillhouse Avenue, New Haven) as we explore the stories and personalities of six women and how they influenced the history of Ancient Israel.
This week, we will look at two prominent foreigners in Israel’s History: Ruth and Jezebel. These women offer contrasting mod- els of virtue and vice. This talk will also explore the personifi- cation of Wisdom and Folly in the Book of Proverbs.
