Writing women into history might solve the riddle of the origin and function of the so-called Words of Institution (1 Cor 11:23–25/Mark 14:22–24 par.). In respect to its genre, the Words of Institution are neither an etiology, nor astory but astory fragment that needs to be contextualized by aretelling of Jesus'spassion. Ritual lament, sung mostly by women, is agenre that contains retellings of the suffering and death of one's beloved, in first person speech utilizing food and drink as amediator between life and the afterlife. Therefore, women'slaments provide aritual space in which someone might have acted out the very part Jesus plays and the words he spoke at some early Christian banquets including the Last Supper.
