Series Information

Description: This study offers a reconstruction of Sennacherib s campaign against Judah and Jerusalem in 701 BC. It contrasts and compares various, partly contradictious readings of this event and challenges established narratives. By giving equal weight to a great variety of different sources, whether literary or archaeological, the author comes to a new and profound understanding of this complex military conflict.

Subjects: Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Ancient Near Eastern History, History of Israel
