Example text

The first of these consists in the silencing of female ‘citizens’. Respectable women, with the exception of a few older married women, are rarely portrayed on the stage. Exceptions prove the rule: when, in the Dyskolos the misanthrope’s daughter goes to fetch water from a well she is left unnamed. The shock that the audience may have felt at the flouting of the conventions of normal behaviour is articulated by Daos, the slave of her half-brother Gorgias, who criticises her father harshly for not supervising her more closely (218ff).

For some the provenance is so doubtful that these verses must be rejected when discussing reaction to women in the first century (Kraemer 1992: 149). Others have emphasised Paul’s Jewish upbringing which, in their view, continues to condition his thoughts on appropriate behaviour for women even as he recognises their eschatological equality (Parvey 1974: 127).
