Editorial Reviews

Gary A. Anderson
...Heger engages in a spirited dialogue with the recent work of Menahem Haran.... The overall thesis of the book is Wellhausian. The centralization of the cult under Josiah was the first step toward the disenfranchisement of the religion of the common person. When the locus of cultic activity was restricted to one temple in the city of Jerusalem, the sacerdotal power of the priesthood rose exponentially.
