Miriam's Midwives

Based on diligent research, the seven scenes of this nativity play present a realistic, biblically evidenced and coherent but persistently denied reading of Jesus' coming into this world. His end as a victim of Roman soldiers in touching psycho-logics corresponds with his start in the womb of a young rural worker victimized by Roman soldiers.
Far from blasphemy but full of sympathy with both victims, these scenes show that, in the wording of Brazilian Rabbi Nilton Bonder, "not force and virility but ... the woman builds the path of humanity" and that, in the words of Catholic US-theologist Jane Schaberg, the repressed tradition of Jesus' illegitimous birth "unmasked ... presents us with fuller human realities and therefore with deeper theological potential."

Konrad Yona Riggenmann

Konrad Yona Riggenmann was born in 1952 and finished his actively Catholic youth only in Augsburg major seminary. With a thesis about Bertolt Brecht he became a teacher in public school, staging plenty and publishing a dozen plays for school and amateur theater in the style of his prizewinning 1994 emigrant drama New Heimat. Graduated in 2001 on John Dewey's impact in Brazilian school, he in 2002 won the right to teach cross-free at a Munich court. In three own books plus one co-authored by Richard L. Rubenstein, Irving Greenberg, Cardinal Lehmann and Pope Benedict, the Flechtheim Prize awardee researched how to learn Jew-hatred. After emigration in 2011, a genetic test in 2012 evinced his DNAncestors among those Portuguese Marranos who back then viewed the Promised Land where he now wrote this book: in Brazil.
K.Y. Riggenmann nasceu em 1952 e concluiu a sua mocidade católica ativa só no seminário maior. Tornou-se professor de escola pública com tese de admissão sobre Bertolt Brecht e publicou 12 peças para teatro escolar e amador, seu drama New Heimat sobre emigrantes suábios e judeus sendo premiado em 1994. Pós-graduado em 2001 com tese sobre a influência de John Dewey na escola brasileira, em 2002 um tribunal muniquense após 7 anos lhe permitiu ensinar sem cruz. Honrado pela União Humanista com o Prêmio Flechtheim, em três livros próprios e um junto com Irving Greenberg, Richard Rubenstein, Cardeal Lehmann e Papa Benedito ele inquiriu como se aprende o ódio aos judeus. Emigrado em 2011, em 2012 um teste genético provou seus DNAncestrais entre aqueles marranos portugueses que na época buscaram a Terra Prometida onde ele escreveu o livro: no Brasil.
K.Y. Riggenmann kam 1952 zur Welt und beschloss seine aktiv katholische Jugend erst im Augsburger Priesterseminar. Mit einer Arbeit über Bertolt Brecht wurde er Volksschullehrer, publizierte 12 Stücke für Schul- und Amateurtheater wie sein 1994 preisgekröntes Emigrantenstück New Heimat. Promoviert in 2001 über John Deweys Wirkung in Brasiliens Schule, bekam er 2002 in München nach sieben Prozessjahren das Recht, kreuzfrei zu lehren. In drei Büchern plus einem zusammen mit u.a. Richard L. Rubenstein, Irving Greenberg, Kardinal Lehmann und Papst Benedikt untersuchte der Flechtheim-Preisträger, wie Judenhass gelernt wird. Nach Emigration in 2011 erwies ein Gentest in 2012 seine DNAhnen unter jenen portugiesischen Marranos, die das Gelobte Land dort suchten wo er dieses Buch schrieb: in Brasilien.
