Stones, Tablets, and Scrolls. Periods of the Formation of the Bible, Ed. by Peter Dubovský and Federico Giuntoli, Mohr Siebeck, 2020.
A constant re-evaluation of the new archaeological and textual material unearthed and edited in recent decades is arecurrent duty of ancient and modern scholars. Since the overwhelming amount of available data and the complexity ofnew methodologies can be competently handled only by specialized scholars, such a re-evaluation is no longer possible fora single scholar. For this reason, archaeologists, cuneiform and biblical scholars as well as classicists joined forces at aninternational conference in Rome in May 2017 to share their accumulated knowledge. The results of the proceedings arepresented here in the oral stage along with the Assyrian, Babylonian, Persian, and Greco-Roman periods.
