In this two-volume set, David A. Fiensey and James Riley Strange have invited an international cast of experts to provide a comprehensive analysis of past and current research on Galilee and up-to-date commentary regarding ongoing site excavations. The articles are filled with supporting photographs, maps, and diagrams to help both experts and nonexperts visualize this important period in the history of Galilee and make it come to life. Each volume contains extensive bibliographies at the end of chapters for further study and reading.
The two volumes of Galilee in the Late Second Temple and Mishnaic Periods consolidate a great deal of information that has been brought to light in various journals, field reports, and essays over the past thirty years. The editors have intentionally invited the voices of Christian and Jewish archaeologists, historians, biblical scholars, and social-science interpreters to present their varied findings and opinions. The resulting wealth of information in one single source provides rich opportunities for conversation and for further research by students and scholars of all levels.
Volume 1 covers Life, Culture, and Society. Volume 2 covers The Archaeological Record from Cities, Towns, and Villages.
