Description: The essays in this volume were first delivered as papers at the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung Kolleg „Syro-Palestinian Religions and the Hebrew Bible“ that was presented at the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Studies from 4-5 November 2005. The aim of the Kolleg was to bring together prominent German scholars and South African and other African scholars to discuss major issues in the present debate on the interface between Syro-Palestinian religions and the study of the Hebrew Bible. Different perspectives were offered and a variety of methodologies were applied in reading and interpreting the ancient sources, including texts and material sources.
