Moses: Man Among Men?

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Utilizing the theory of hegemonic masculinity and homosociality, Moses: Man Among Men? explores the relationships that Moses shares with other male characters. While the dynamic nature of hegemonic masculinity is recognized, Anthony Rees builds on the categories of masculinity already well-established within the existing literature on masculinity in Old Testament characterization. The author argues that almost uniformly, Moses is presented in ways which elevate him at the expense of these other male characters. Recognizing the social dimension of gender performance, and in particular the homosocial nature of masculine identity, this book also pays attention to the social nature of these relationships, in particular those of Moses’ family members.
