This is a volume of cross-disciplinary essays focused on the enigmatic story of the woman taken in adultery (John 7.53--8.11). Explorations of the background, history and interpretation of the passage are offered, including investigations of the adulterous woman motif in Old Testament, New Testament, rabbinic, patristic and mediaeval writings. There are also treatments of the motif as it appears in other cultural expressions, such as Nathaniel Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter, and assessments of the theme's significance for contemporary theologies, in particular for feminist and pastoral approaches. The contributors represent a wide range of professional and ecclesiological backgrounds.
