Historical Approaches to the Bible and the Biblical World


This research unit provides a forum on historical method when dealing with the history of Palestine/Israel ("Geschichte Israels") and the relevant media mainly in the second and first Millennium BCE. We seek to foster scholarly and open-minded discussions integrating archaeology, history of media (incl. literary theory) and cultural studies. Beside a core-panel with frequent presence, invited papers are scheduled as well as open sessions.
