Abstract

Under the influence of M. Foucault's research and feminist studies, the scholars of Jewish and rabbinic studies launched the question related to the corporeality of God in Rabbinic Judaism. Starting from the times of Saadia Gaon and Moses Maimonides, the question such as this one was usually related to heresy. Nevertheless, the speculations of God’s body are far from being any novelty in Judaism and here we would like to explore how Rabbinic Judaism assumed the presence of God's body in the Holy text, demanding a radically new anthropological – exegetical standards, from all of those longing to encounter God.
