Margaret Barker on Wisdom
I'm going to be continuing my research into Creation and Wisdom, because I think it is important from a Girardian perspective. "The Lamb slain since the foundation of the World". Wisdom seems to have been present at "Creation" and in Proverbs 8:23 there is an indication that Wisdom was "poured out" since the beginning, and a bit later, in verse 24, I think, "travail" and waters come up. Proverbs 8:22-31 should be very interesting for Mimetic/Scapegoat theory. It is a creation or originary narrative. Anyway, this is Margaret Barker's essay Where Shall Wisdom Be Found?, it provides some good background on Wisdom.
