The Old Testament story of the widow Judith--the irresistible siren who lured her people's deadly enemy Holofernes to his death, beheading him in his own bed to save Jerusalem--is an enduring cultural myth in Western society. This title investigates the periodic resurgence of the Judith legend and how the myth and history became confused. 45 illustrations.
