The papers in this volume were all presented at a conference held at King's College London on 4-6 August 2008, entitled "Embroidered Garments: Sex and Gender in Biblical and Post-Biblical Texts with a Priestly Worldview or Concerns". This was the second of a projected series of conferences at King's on the theme of questions of sex and gender in the Hebrew Bible; the first conference, entitled "A Question of Sex?", took place in July-August 2006, and the papers from it were published as A Question of Sex? Gender and Difference in the Hebrew Bible and Beyond (Sheffield Phoenix Press, 2007).ContentsPART I: GENDERING PRIESTLY PERSONNELAthalya BrennerGender in Prophecy, Magic and Priesthood: From Sumer to Ancient IsraelDeborah W.
