Description

Ancient Sisterhood: The Lost Traditions of Hagar and Sarah Paperback.

Ancient Sisterhood: The Lost Traditions of Hagar and Sarah Paperback. Teubal's conclusions, though equally exciting, are less satisfying aesthetically, as she concludes that the Hagar of the Bible was really two different people whose stories got twisted together into a single strand. There are some wonderful insights, though, such as that Hagar is the only woman in the Bible to name a divinity.

In this fascinating piece of scholarly detective work, biblical scholar Savina J. Teubal peels away millenia of patriarchal distortion to reveal the lost tradition of biblical matriarchs. In Ancient Sisterhood: The Lost Traditions of Hagar and Sarah (originally published as Hagar the Egyptian), she shows that Hagar, the mother of Ishmael, was actually lady-in-waiting to the priestess Sarah and participated in an ancient Near Eastern custom of surrogate motherhood. Ancient Sisterhood cites evidence that Hebrew women actually enjoyed the privileges and sanctity of their own religious practices.

Very well written and researched. The Bible is filled with little oddities and references that seem to mostly go unnoticed until a secular scholar starts piecing together some of these tidbits with other history of the time for a fuller picture of what was really happening during that time. Women played a much larger roll in history than has been credited. So often, the scholars and researchers in the past have been male and gloss over the real flesh and blood women and their contributions. Think of those women in history that have made it into the 21st Century - they are usually (not always, but very frequently) portrayed as whores or virtuous virgins when in fact, most were dynamic, important people who influenced their eras enormously. Cleopatra has been portrayed over the ages as a whore of Romans when in actuality she was a powerful monarch who kept Rome at bay for 20 years. Since she was believed to be an earthly goddess, she could only marry a god. Caesar was considered a "god" by the Romans, as was Marc Anthony - both reputedly descended from Venus - so she married both with the hope her progeny would survive. Mary Magdalene is portrayed as a prostitute in most Christian circles, even though the Bible does not say that at all. Ms. Teubal has laid out a more realistic and historically accurate picture of early biblical women. Well done.

Understanding that this is a secular scholar is fine. I get that. But this book sets oot to prove that Biblical Abraham and Biblical Sarah are indeed Egyptian gods hidden in Hebrew text, indeed the most sacred of Hebrew writings, The Torah? As a Jew, I have a lot of problems with the reordering of the text to prove her theories in a reverse engineered manner. This one is being striped and put in the recycling bin.

This companion volume to the same author's "Sarah the Priestess" uses the same scholarly method of unraveling different strands of the Genesis text and examining each one scrupulously to arrive at a new view of Hagar, the character from Genesis.

While the author's conclusions about Hagar are just as surprising and exciting as those she reached about Sarah, I still didn't like this book quite as much as the first one. It seemed too obvious that, having taken Sarah's "side" in the first book, Teubal felt compelled to do justice to the other woman in the story, perhaps motivated by guilt or political correctness.

Teubal's conclusions, though equally exciting, are less satisfying aesthetically, as she concludes that the Hagar of the Bible was really two different people whose stories got twisted together into a single strand.

There are some wonderful insights, though, such as that Hagar is the only woman in the Bible to name a divinity. You come away with a whole new way of understanding Hagar.
