Bathsheba is a mysterious and enigmatic determine who appears to be like in just seventy-six verses of the Bible and whose tale is riddled with gaps. yet this likely minor lady personality, who performs a severe position in King David’s tale, has survived during the a long time, and her “afterlife” within the historical past of interpretation is wealthy and large. In Bathsheba Survives, Sara M. Koenig lines Bathsheba’s reception all through heritage and in a number of genres, demonstrating how she has been characterised at the spectrum from helpless sufferer to unscrupulous seductress.

Early Jewish interpretations, Koenig argues, spotlight Bathsheba’s position as Solomon’s mom and adviser, whereas texts from the patristic period view her as a sort: of sinful flesh, of the legislation, or of the gentile church. Works from the medieval interval depict Bathsheba as a seductress who desires to tempt David, with artwork embellishing her nudity, whereas reformers comparable to Luther and Calvin handled Bathsheba in a in most cases serious mild as indiscreet and maybe even devious. in the course of the Enlightenment interval, Koenig claims Bathsheba was once most often mentioned in commentaries that used old severe the right way to clarify her personality and her actions.

Koenig then demonstrates how Bathsheba is known in today’s well known media as either seductress and sufferer, being featured in novels, movies, and in song from such artists as Leonard Cohen and Sting. The minor, enigmatic biblical personality Bathsheba, Koenig writes, has survived via time through those that have acquired her and spoken approximately her in various methods. notwithstanding she disappears from the biblical textual content, she resurfaces in suggestion and examine and should proceed to outlive within the centuries to come.
