What value might there be in a queer response to Leo Steinberg’s The Sexuality of Christ in Renaissance Art and in Modern Oblivion?Stuart Macwilliam

Stuart  is an honorary research fellow in the Department of Theology and Religion at Exeter University. From 2005 to 2007 he taught New Testament Greek and Biblical Hebrew for the Department, on a secondment from his then full-time job as subject librarian for the School and a member of the University Library’s Senior Management Team, a post he had filled for many years; after his retirement from the library, he continued teaching biblical languages as a part-time lecturer in the department, until his second retirement last year.

His own research interests are queer theory, masculinities and the Hebrew Bible. He has written articles and book chapters on male beauty in the Hebrew Bible, Jeremiah and Baruch, and Queen Athaliah (in a book on biblical masculinities); his Queer Theory and the Prophetic Marriage Metaphor in the Hebrew Bible was published in 2011.
