Hidden Perspectives

Bringing the Bible Out of the Closet

“A Man of Unclean Lips”: Isaiah, the Temple, and Queer Identities.

My doctoral research looks at conceptions of divine sexuality in the Hebrew Bible, specifically focusing on God’s penis. In it I hope to present different readings of key texts to demonstrate that sexuality cannot be divorced from the divine realm. In contrast to a lot of scholarship, I wish to show that sexual bodies, practices, rituals, and narratives belong as much to the Israelites as they do to their nefariously portrayed neighbours, the Canaanites.
