|Summary, etc.:|| The bodies of a people encode and continually retell the story of their families, cities and nations. In the Hebrew Bible, the bodies of notable heroic figures - warriors, kings and cultural founders - not only communicate values on an individual level but they also bear meaning for the fate of the nation. This text examines the Hebrew Bible and its treatment of heroic and body themes.
