Abstract This collection of essays, the proceedings of an international conference held at King’s College London in 2008, explores issues in the construction of gender that appear in the Hebrew Bible both in relation to priesthood itself and in literature with a priestly world-view (the P source, Chronicles, Ezra–Nehemiah, Ezekiel). Topics covered include female religious functionaries and their absence from the Hebrew Bible, masculinity and femininity as seen through the lens of priestly purity legislation, priestly genealogies as an expression of Jacques Derrida’s ‘archive fever’, the definition of masculinity that is evidenced by priests’ clothing, and the marginalization of women in priestly ideologies of nationality and kinship.
