Body language as communication: perspectives from the Hebrew Bible

This contribution treats aspects of the important source of nonverbal communication in the Hebrew Bible. It focuses especially on the following themes:
- the problem of terminology,
- legal acts, with special emphasis on the idea of dissociation,
- the manner in which some emotions (shame, disgust) are displayed nonverbally,
- the manifestation of nonverbal communication in narrative literature (especially in the nonverbal category “proxemics” in Ruth 2-3).
