Jerusalem in Bible and Archaeology: The First Temple Period (Symposium Series, No. 18)by Andrew G. Vaughn
Pub. Date: 08/28/2003
Publisher: Society of Biblical Literature
What are archaeologists and biblical scholars saying about Jerusalem? This volume includes the most up-to-date cross-disciplinary assessment of biblical Jerusalem (ca. 2000-586 B.C.E.) that represents the views of biblical historians, archaeologists, Assyriologists, and Egyptologists. The archaeological articles both summarize and critique previous theories as well highly contested interpretations of First Temple period Jerusalem. The interpretative essays ask the question, "Can there be any dialogue between archaeologists and biblical scholars in the absence of consensus?" The essays give a clear "yes" to this question and provide suggestions for how archaeology and biblical studies can and should be in conversation.
