Our objective is to scrutinize the Old Testament texts which concern the period of the Iron Age in the light of the North-West Semitic epigraphic sources. We will study selected inscriptions written in Aramaic and in Canaanite languages, which concern the texts of the Old Testament. Basic knowledge of Classical (Biblical) Hebrew is an indispensable precondition to attending and participating in this course.
