Requirements: .PDF reader, 1023 kb
Overview: This book seeks to demonstrate that archaeological data can provide a strong and independent witness to the religious practices of the ancient inhabitants of Syria-Palestine and help to identify the integral part that religion played in the social and political worlds of the Israelites and Canaanites. By applying current anthropological and sociological theory to ancient materials excavated since the early 20th century, the author offers a new way of looking at the archaeological data.
