New Testament professor, author, social justice advocate, and feminist Luise Schottroff died on February 8 of this year.
“Schottroff’s work in New Testament Studies was truly groundbreaking. She responded to the challenges of a post-Shoah theology through her thorough critique of Christian anti-Jewish readings of the Scriptures. In addition, her feminist interpretations and socio-historical exegesis of the New Testament provided a new hermeneutical paradigm for understanding the Pauline letters and the parables.”
