Abstract Though scholars have occasionally noted various parings of the five thresholds of 1 Samuel's first six chapters, the overall spatial construction of the text has generally been neglected. This article argues that the five doors form a spatially organised schema that structures both the text and the described universe, it assesses how the text socially (re) produces space within this matrix and poses questions as to how spatial dialectics and character interaction might collude in the processes of constituting and reconstituting the world as marked out by these thresholds.
