Gender and shame in Paul’s churches

intersections between theology and culture

Eliezer Gonzalez

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper will examine the Pauline restrictions on women within the context of the honor–shame culture prevalent in the first century, with a particular focus on 1 Cor 11, 14, 7. Suggestions will then be made about Paul’s possible theological-cultural agenda. Some concluding observations will also be made in terms of the relevance of these issues for the church today.
