Zoran disputes equality of women

The Intervention by Del ParsonTARENTUM, AD 23

A traveling Jewish tutor passing through the city has shocked some local philosophers with his ideas on marriage and the respective roles of men and women. For the second time in the past few days, Joshua, also known as the Scribe of Damascus, was involved as a peacemaker in a local dispute. Onlookers were shocked as the scribe intervened in an argument between a local married couple.

Witnesses said an unidentified man was shouting at his wife, when the Jewish tutor drew him aside and had a quiet conversation with him. Reportedly the tutor advanced the idea that a man should treat his wife as an equal, claiming that God, whom he referred to as the “Father in heaven,” treats the “Spirit Mother of the universe” as an equal. Zoran, a philosopher here, found the idea impractical. “How could a man treat his wife as an equal?” Zoran asserted. “Men are meant to rule the family.” But the local couple who were involved in the incident found the idea workable. The man said: “He spoke in such a gracious way and was so sincere and kindly. Yet he was obviously a powerful, fearless man. My wife and I are reconciled to a new mutual respect, a new way of life.” The controversial tutor declined to comment on the incident.
