At first glance, the author of Wisdom 8 tells us the love story of King Solomon and Sophia. However, a closer look reveals that he wittily draws on familiar motifs from Hellenistic, Egyptian and Jewish backgrounds. By means of appropriation and transformation, he intertwines various semantic threads and unleashes an entirely new image of Lady Wisdom. Scrutinizing components such as royal and philosophical ideologies, the contest for excellence, and asceticism exposes a discourse of inherent masculinity. At the end of this golden thread, there emerges the idea of re-engendering.
