Excavations at ancient Nabratein : synagogue and environs by Eric M Meyers( )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The site of Nabratein is situated on a remote promontory in an extensive pine forest northeast of Safed. This report is the sixth and final volume of the Meiron Excavation Project. The discovery in 1981 of the pediment of a Holy Ark from the Nabratein synagogue coincided with the release of the film Raiders of the Lost Ark. That coincidence brought much unanticipated press coverage to the expedition and its senior staff, even though we insisted that the discovery of perhaps the earliest synagogue ark was not to be identified with the recovery of the biblical Ark of the Covenant. Although the media attention was totally unexpected, we all did our best to respond to the occasion with honesty and a bit of whimsy. Such coverage of the Nabratein excavation resulted in making many more people interested in archaeology, even if it didn t solve a biblical mystery. Now we hope that this full publication of the results of our work at the site will afford it a lasting place in the annals of the archaeology of Israel."--Publisher's description

It includes 1,125 alphabetically arranged entries on sites, languages, material culture, archaeological methods, organizations and institutions, and major excavators and scholars of the field. This one-of-a-kind, accessibly written reference brings new breadth to the study of archaeology in the biblical world, making it a valuable resource not only to scholars and students of archaeology, but also to those with an interest in ancient art and architecture, languages, history, and religion."
Archaeology of the land of the Bible by Amihay Mazar( Book )

in English and held by 1,009 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In volume 1, Israeli archaeologist Mazar (Institute of Archaeology, Hebrew U. in Jerusalem) introduces archaeological research in Israel and Jordan, and discusses its implications for our knowledge of the world of the Old Testament. He covers the period from the first permanent settlements to the destruction of the First Temple by Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonian domination of the country. Volume 2 considers various artifacts unearthed in recent years and relates them to the Assyrian, Babylonian, and Persian periods in the Bible. Accompanied by photographs and illustrations of ancient relics ranging from household pottery to jewelry and sculpture. Volume 3 explores the archaeological record of the land of the Bible from its conquest by Alexander the Great in the fourth century BCE until the reign of the Roman Emperor Constantine in the fourth century CE. Focusing on the region's archaeology during the crucial Greco-Roman era, this book offers an overview of a tumultuous period in world history
Archaeology, bible, politics, and the media : proceedings of the Duke University conference, April 23-24, 2009 by Eric M Meyers( )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Archaeological discoveries relating to the Bible are prominent in the public square. Even archaeological controversies normally confined to the pages of obscure journals are considered newsworthy when they touch on biblical themes, people, or places. However, scholars are not always equipped to handle this sort of attention. Thus, the conference published in this book was organized to bring scholars into conversation with representatives of the media and to help them become better prepared to address the general public. Participants included the print media and the visual media as well as academics. The relation between archaeological controversies and Middle East politics emerged as a fraught subject in several essays, with the situation of the City of David in Jerusalem as a case in point. Other essays consider looting in Iraq and in other regions in the Middle East and highlight the legal and moral issues involved—for when legal norms recognized in international law and archaeological standards are violated, chaos reigns. This volume opens a dialogue between scholars and the media, providing both with perspectives that will enable them to become better at communicating what they do to a wide audience. And it offers lay communities who learn about archaeology and the Bible through the popular media information that will make them more sensitive to the way discoveries and issues are presented."--

The pottery from ancient Sepphoris( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sepphoris, “the ornament of all Galilee” according to Josephus, was an important Galilean site during the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine periods and into early Islamic times. It served as Herod Antipas’s capital of Galilee in the late first century B.C.E. and the early first century C.E., and the Sanhedrin (the supreme Jewish judicial authority) was located there for a time in the third century C.E. Extensive excavations on the western acropolis—probably the location of many of the Jewish occupants of this multicultural city—by the Duke University-Hebrew University project in the mid- to late 1980s and the Duke excavations of the 1990s produced a remarkable assemblage of ceramic wares. This book provides an overview of the history and chronology of the site. It then presents a detailed examination of the pottery. Featuring 55 plates with line-drawings as well as some photos of the various ceramic types, this important publication will be essential for all studies of the archaeology of early Judaism and Christianity in the Holy Land."--
Archaeology, the rabbis, and early Christianity : the social and historical setting of Palestinian Judaism and Christianity by Eric M Meyers( Book )

23 editions published between 1981 and 1984 in English and French and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the first time an accurate picture of rabbinic Judaism and Christian origins in Roman Palestine emerges as two active field archaeologists--one Jewish and the other Christian-- integrate historical literature with current archaeological findings. Their unique blending of literary and nonliterary approaches to the past allows a more reliable reconstruction of this critical and formative era of Western civilization"--Back cover
The Bible in the public square : its enduring influence in American life by Eric M Meyers( )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fascinating collection of essays explores how varying perceptions and interpretations of scripture manifest themselves in key spheres of American culture, such as conceptions of American identity, politics, popular culture, and public education. It marshals a range of methodological perspectives--American history, the history of ideas, film studies, visual studies, cultural studies, education, and church-state studies--to explore how claims of American identity have been interwoven with ideological appeals to the nation's purported biblical heritage, demonstrate ways in which the Bible serves as a fertile source for political rhetoric, highlight the use of the Bible in media ranging from Hollywood blockbusters to Rastafarian lyrics, and examine the Bible in the American schoolhouse, an issue that prompted some of the most influential court rulings of the twentieth century.

Alexander to Constantine by Eric M Meyers( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on the most recent, groundbreaking archaeological research, Eric M. Meyers and Mark A. Chancey re-narrate the history of ancient Palestine in this richly illustrated and expertly integrated book. Spanning from the conquest of Alexander the Great in the fourth century BCE until the reign of the Roman emperor Constantine in the fourth century CE, they synthesize archaeological evidence with ancient literary sources (including the Bible) to offer a sustained overview of the tumultuous intellectual and religious changes that impacted world history during the Greco-Roman period. The authors demonstrate how the transformation of the ancient Near East under the influence of the Greeks and then the Romans led to foundational changes in both the material and intellectual worlds of the Levant. Palestine's subjection to Hellenistic kingdoms, its rule by the Hasmonean and Herodian dynasties, the two disastrous Jewish revolts against Rome, and its full incorporation into the Roman Empire provide a background for the emergence of Christianity. The authors observe in the archaeological record how Judaism and Christianity were virtually undistinguishable for centuries, until the rise of imperial Christianity with Emperor Constantine. The only book-length overview available that focuses on the archaeology of Palestine in this period, this comprehensive and powerfully illuminating work sheds new light on the lands of the Bible." -- Publisher's description
