Formatted Abstract/Summary
...I wish to introduce the cherubim as they are described in the final book of the Hebrew canon, The Book of Chronicles (Divrei Hayammim) to argue that these curious cherubim insist on calling for sexual difference. In other words, while the configuration of the cherubim in Exodus may be 'a representation of a sexuality that has never been incarnated' (Irigaray 1993a, p. 16), the gesturing of the very unusual cherubim in Chronicles represents their desperation, indeed the exigency, of desire for difference. I suggest we need to include them in our genealogy of the 'angel' as harbinger of an ethics of sexual difference.
