The only source in which Sarah is mentioned is the Book of Genesis, which contains very few highly selective and rather enigmatic stories dealing with her. On the surface, these stories tell us very little about Sarah, and what they do tell is complicated and confused by the probability that it represents residue surviving from two different written sources based on two independent oral traditions. Nevertheless, the role which Sarah plays, in the Genesis narratives, apears to be a highly energetic one, a role so active, in fact, that it repeatedly overshadows that of her husband. In a patriarchal environment such as the Canaan of Genesis, the situation is discordant and problematic. Dr. Teubal suggests that the difficulty is eliminated, however, if we understand that Sarah and the other matriarchs mentioned in the narratives acted within the established, traditional Mesopotamian role of priestess, of a class of women who retained a highly privileged position vis-a-vis their husbands. Dr. Teubal shows that the "Sarah tradition" represents a nonpatriarchal system struggling for survival in isolation, in the patriarchal environment of what was for Sarah a foreign society. She further indicates that the insistence of Sarah and Rebekah that their sons and heirs marry wives from the old homeland had to do not so much with preference for endogamy and cousin marriage as with their intention of ensuring the continuation of their old kahina-tradition against the overwhelming odds represented by patriarchal Canaan.… (mer)

An amazing book, recommended by R. Crumb in his graphic Illustrated Genesis. The author posits a theory that the matriarchs (Sarah, Rebekah, and Rachel) were priestesses in their native Mesopotamia and were in conflict with the patriarchal systems of Canaan and Egypt. I've spent a lot of time in the Old Testament, but these theories about the matriarchs of Genesis seem so sensible and could explain so much. The author was painstaking and examines the scriptures in light of contemporaneous non-biblical accounts. This book was just my cup of non-fiction tea. ( )
