"Hidden Behind a Veil of Blood:" God and the Violence Against Women in the Bible

Ross and Viviano at Siena Center

In the Old Testament God's violence against Israel's enemies was a way to show God's love for his people, but God's violence was also directed against Israel itself who was cast in the role of an unfaithful wife. How do we deal with the violence of God, especially as it is directed against women? Loyola Theology Department faculty Susan A. Ross and Pauline Viviano will address this and related issues in a presentation at the Siena Center of Dominican University titled:

"Hidden Behind a Veil of Blood:" God and the Violence Against Women in the Bible
