  • Anne Katrine de Hemmer Gudme
The present article explores the concept of domestic space in biblical memory with special focus on domestic space as liminal space in a field of tension between the binaries inside-outside and safety-danger. In the Hebrew Bible, domestic space is primarily portrayed as safe and sheltered space and as the core locus for hospitality, but at the same time the Hebrew Bible stresses that although domestic space is tied to the activities of women, women are not in fact entitled to offer hospitality.
