Dr. Shawna Dolansky—The Biblical Ten Commandments
Many of us can recite at least some of the famous list of “Thou shalt nots.” But, few of us ever think about whether or not the prohibitions refer to what we think they refer to. What was actually meant by such concepts that we translate as “adultery,” “graven image,” “bearing false witness,” “taking the Lord’s name in vain,” and “only one God?” Written thousands of years ago in a place and language very different from ours, many of the laws don’t actually discuss – or prohibit – the things we might think they do. Dr. Shawna Dolansky is currently Adjunct Research Fellow at Carleton University’s College of the Humanities.
