This is a daring and unorthodox re-evaluation of the Song of Solomon which focuses on the symbolic and historical context of the lyrics, verse by verse. While traditional interpretations tend to focus on the suggestion that the Song is symbolic of a sacred marriage between Israel and Yahweh, here, attention is given to the apparent evidence for skulduggery via sorcery and feminine wiles. King Solomon was renowned for having a large harem, including foreigners who raised concerns for the court, as the king was all too keen to bend the rules and turn a blind eye to their worship of idols. In the Song is a disturbing tale of one such foreign woman, whose ambition for herself and her child puts the King in mortal danger...and the land of Israel in potential jeopardy. A flight of fancy? Consider the documented fate of Ramses III of Egypt, some 200 years before Solomon – a disgruntled and ambitious wife in the Egyptian harem conspired to murder Ramses...using wax figures and magical spells to immobilise his bodyguards! Belief in sorcery was nonetheless potent at the time the Song was written.

Book Description CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 200 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.5in.J. Tyson, MA argues that The Song of Solomon is replete with references to ancient earth magick and sexual sorcery. The primary figure, the woman of the Song, is a foreign seductress, depicted as the antagonist, putting King Solomon in jeopardy. Solomon was renowned for having multiple foreign women in his court and for loosening the Israelite laws to allow them freedom to worship their own deities. With hindsight, Tyson suggests, the post-Babylonian Israelites, who were keen to have foreigners put away after years of inter-marriage, wrote the Song to preserve the caveat of Solomons experience. The Song was thus written to warn future leaders not to allow the guile of foreign women to jeopardize Israel itself. By todays standards, however, the woman of the Song becomes a fascinating case study of feminine sorcery in a context of Egyptian-Israelite monarchy. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
