One Response to Silencing the Women

    I don’t pretend to have a great answer for the text, but there are a couple of questions that arise in light of this proposal from Rosenstock-Huessy. First, Paul does direct them to speak with their husbands if they desire to “learn” something. This does not sound like the emotional wailing or hysterical cries suggested. Second, Paul makes a reference back to what “the law” says. I don’t know what he has in mind, but my first inclination is that it is a particularly Jewish tradition rooted in the Torah. Thoughts?
