Mike Koke is on a roll with a pleasant meme. I don’t like the restrictive focus on scholars who are specialists in Bible. Biblical scholars would do well to read outside their field more. With that in mind, I offer a list of female scholars outside the field, and a list of female scholars in the field, in alphabetical order, that have had a significant impact on the way I see the world and biblical literature. Outsiders of course are sometimes fluent, if not in biblical studies, at least in biblical literature.
