Abstract

Four examples of the literary rewriting of Judg. 11:29-40 in devotional literature, dating from the end of the 18th century to the beginning of the 20th century, are described and analysed. All do away with the simplicity and "neutrality" found in the biblical story of Jephthah and his daughter and turn it into high drama with sharply drawn and distinct protagonists and a sometimes exuberant depiction of atmosphere. In the hands of the authors the story becomes the bearer of the theological ideas and moral views which the novelists and poets and their times espoused.
