ARTH 17.02 Cities of the Biblical World, An Archaeological Approach

The city has always been the center for social and economic activity in all complex societies, as well as a locus for innovation and change.  This is no less true for the ancient cities of the biblical world, whose rich, multi-cultural environments not only shaped but also often transformed the identities of their inhabitants. The subject of this course will be the investigation of those key places where Jewish and later Christian identity was formulated and where their early history unfolded.  We'll explore and pay special attention to those cosmopolitan centers where Jews interacted with other ancient peoples of the Middle East and eastern Mediterranean.
