Foreign Women of the Deuteronomistic History in Postcolonial Perspective

image of Biblical Interpretation

Foreign women play a significant role in the narrative of the Deuteronomistic History. This article examines the similarities of how the Deuteronomistic authors portrayed these women and compares those characteristics with how foreign women are constructed within colonial/postcolonial literature from other periods. Foreign women are viewed with suspicion because they maintain their cultural identity and in some cases promote a kind of hybridity of religious beliefs and values. Typically foreign women are described in hypersexualized terms in both the Deuteronomistic History and in colonial/postcolonial literature. This article aims to expose the colonial entangle­ments of the Deuteronomistic authors and their construction of foreign women as symbolic of the threat of cultural hybridity.
