Sex, Gender and Homoeroticism in Paul's Letters
Languages of publication
The paper provides a philological, literary, hermeneutical, anthropological and gender analysis of Paul’s Letters (Proto-Pauline) which deals with question of homoeroticism (Rom 1:18–32 and 1 Cor 6:9–10). Based on an interpretative tradition which had an absolute prevalence up until the 1960s, it postulates the hypothesis of Paul’s strong heteronormativity, which it consequently intends to examine. It also studies the concept of gender in Greco-Roman society and in Hebrew tradition and the symbolical models lying behind it. It inquires into eventual sources and influences of Paul’s thoughts in the Torah, in Second Temple Judaism and in Hellenistic philosophy (especially natural theology and natural law theory). The paper traces mutual differences but also intersections. It then attempts to situate Paul’s own ideas into this environment with a focus on its heteronormative tendencies and interpretations.
