OverviewThis module explores the physical environment of the world of ancient Israel and early Judaism using both literary and archaeological evidence. Particular attention is paid to the religious worldview of the ancient Israelites and their neighbours in the land of Palestine and in Babylonia, Persia, Egypt and the Hellenistic world. The literature of the Israelites (primarily the Bible and in particular the Pentateuch and the Deuteronomistic History) is examined within this wider context.
