Using variety of methods, this unit explores expressions of female prophecy preserved in the ancient Jewish and Christian literature from c. 200 B.C.E. to 400 C.E. and compares these references with each other. The aim of the workshop is to build a more complex understanding of the phenomenon of women’s prophecy and its place in early Jewish and Christian traditions.
