Instead, they prescribe what to do in the cases of skin disease, delivery and woman's genital discharges, but the particular way of dealing with the body and the language used in Leviticus 12 and 15 ask for clarification: how do these texts construct the male and female body?

Her study provides material for a contemporary anthropology of bodies which relates the human sexed body to God's holiness"--"@en ;
