Vem är gäst och främling — och vad betyder det?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Starting in the story about Lot and the visiting angels in Genesis 19, I reflect in this article on the relation between guest and host. What are the demands and requirements from both sides? Perhaps one is more restricted than is often thought, restricted by expectations from the other and by expectations from people around. Also, perhaps the roles may change, the host being treated as guest for instance. In certain respects. Hospitality has become a beautiful word, but it is not an unproblematic phenomenon. It is rather about a dynamic and mobile relationship, sometimes with frightening implications.
