Judith: Swoot!

03 Feb

Susanne Reisenberger, “Judith beheads Holofernes,” from “Strong Women of the Old Testament,” photo, http://www.fotocommunity.de/pc/pc/display/23734003

Shoot!  Also known as Strong Women Of the Old Testament.   Sort of the feminine super-heroines of the Hebrew people.

However, “strong” is not always “good.”   Ruth, Sarah, Esther, Hulda, Rebecca, and Judith – on the good side.  Hagar and Rahab – maybe.   Jezebel and Delilah – not so much.  But Susanne Reisenberger chose to represent them in her photographic series on Strong Women of the Old Testament, perhaps because their strength is interesting.
