CMRS Roundtable

Professor Marianna Birnbaum (Germanic, UCLA) discusses her current work on Biblical topics as they appear in literature, connecting Biblical stories about fathers and daughters with plots in literature from the Renaissance to Romanticism. Her discussion includes, among others, Dinah and Jacob, Esther and Mordechai, and Lot and his daughters, with an analysis of the roles these fathers and surrogate fathers play, showing how the Biblical messages operate in belles lettres.

Funding for CMRS Roundtables is provided by the Armand Hammer Endowment for the UCLA Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies.
