Abstract:The story of Noah's drunkenness in Gen. 9:20-25 is ambiguous, allowing for multiple interpretations, including the possibility that Ham sexually violated Noah's wife. Gen. 19:30-38 interprets Gen. 9:20-25 as maternal incest, presenting Lot's fathering of Moab and Ammon by his daughters as parallel to Ham's fathering of Canaan by his mother. This dissertation examines the allusive nature of Gen 19:30-38, in which Lot's daughters make their father drink wine and initiate sexual intercourse with him, conceiving sons. I argue that the author of Gen. 19:30-38 constructs the narrative of Lot's drunkenness on the basis of Noah's drunkenness, nakedness and the actions of Ham in Gen. 9:20-25. Close examination of the parallels to Gen. 9:20-25 constructed in Gen. 19:30-38 reveals that the latter author interpreted Ham's actions as maternal incest. Although the theory that Gen. 9:20-25 may be interpreted as Ham's sexual violation of Noah's wife has been investigated in recent years, it does not enjoy widespread approval, and thus far no study has argued that this interpretation is expressed in ancient texts. I demonstrate that, far from being a modern innovation, the theory that Ham had sexual intercourse with Noah's wife is reflected in Gen. 19:30-38 and in the second century CE Testament of Reuben. In addition, a tradition denigrating the sexual morality of Noah's wife is implied in the Qur'an, and may have given rise to Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions defaming the virtue of this biblical woman.
