LitBalm presents another free chapter from The Poly-Gamē | Unpacking the Acceptance of Polygyny among Women In and Out of Biblical Contexts. Part 2 MY PARTNER IN JEALOUSY: Section II.2 Language takes a look at countries in Africa and Asia to investigate the truth regarding the supposition that influence from “the West” is the culprit for female jealousy in the United States and what languages native to these spaces can tell us about intrafemale conflict between women in concurrent partnerships (polygyny). Section II.2 also revisits Tanak (Old Testament) & Deutro-canonical texts (Sirach) for a look at what the accounts and the Hebrew have to say.
