As the home place of Jesus the question of the identity of Galilee has received symbolic significance. The first part of the essay discusses how the term "ethnicity" with its origin in social anthropology, when used of the identity of Galilee is over determined by religion and continues a traditional description of Galilee as "Jewish." As an alternative the essay introduces an intersectionalist approach that in addition to ethnicity includes i.a. gender, status, disability. The specific contribution of the essay is to add place to the analysis; using gospel narratives as its material it explores how the settings of social relations, whether dominated by the places of power in Galilee or in the local settings of village and households, influence hierarchical relations. The essay suggests that the broader perspectives of an intersectionalist approach destabilises the image of a religiously defined Jewish Galilee.
