Abstract:

"According to Genesis, humans are made in God's image while animals are not. In Biblical animality after Jacques Derrida, Hannah M. Strømmen challenges the idea that the Bible privileges humans in a straightforwardly anthropocentric manner. By building on the work of Jacques Derrida, Strømmen brings to light significant moments in the biblical archive where the lines between the divine, human, and animal are ambiguous, in texts ranging from Noah as the first carnivorous man in Genesis 9 to Revelation's beasts. Her critical engagement with the way the Bible is frequently held up as a point of blame for anthropocentrism contributes to the field of animal studies as well as to the field of biblical studies by looking closely at familiar biblical texts from a new theoretical and exegetical angle."--Page 4 of cover.
