Tour will take you from ancient to medieval Georgia. Just walk at the small streets of old Tbilisi and fill its spirit. Here you will find churches, synagogues, mosque as well as famous 19th century houses with wooden balconies. Visit the sulphur baths and enjoy the superb panoramic views of the Old city. Located at the confluence of the Aragvi and Mtkvari rivers, Mtskheta was the ancient capital of the Eastern Georgian Kingdom from the Third Century BCE to Fifth Century CE. The favourable natural conditions, its strategic location at the intersection of trade routes, and its close relations with the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, Syria, Palestine, and Byzantium, generated and stimulated the development of Mtskheta and led to the integration of different cultural influences with local cultural traditions.
This book critically assesses biblical and archaeological data from the period of King Omri of Israel, as well as inscriptional sources from Syria-Palestine and related material for a socio-historical analysis of the Northern Kingdom in the ninth century BCE. The book is an attempt to extend the sociological research (which has been successfully applied to such other topics as Israelite settlement in Canaan, the origins and early development of the monarchy, et cetra), to the divided monarch as well. The book uses the social scientific approach, as it has gained currency among biblical scholars, specifically macrosociological theory, applied to the political and economic systems. The book argues that it is possible to achieve a closer dialogue between the interests of history on the one hand and sociology on the other in the study of ancient Israelite society.

The Notzrim, also Nasaraioi/Nasoraean (Gk: ), from Hebrew or "sentry" or "watchmen" (those who "keep safe" the original teachings), are a sect that began around the time of Jeremiah but flourished as a Gnostic movement during the reign of the Hasmonean queen Alexandra Helene Salome among Hellenized supporters of Rome in Judea. Pliny the Elder indicates that Nasaraioi lived not far from Apamea, in Syria in a city called Bambyx, Hierapolis or Mabog. Dubourg dates Pliny's source between 30 and 20 BCE and, accounting for the lapse of time required for the installation in Syria of a sect born in Palestine, suggests the presence of a Nasoraean current around 50 BCE.
The present volume contains the updated versions of the papers presented at the workshop "Wandering Arameans: Arameans Inside and Outside of Syria", held at the Faculty of Theology of the University of Leipzig in October 2014. The intention of the workshop was to explore Aramean cultures and their impact on their neighbors, including linguistic influences.The division of the volume into the sections "Syria and Palestine" and "Mesopotamia and Egypt" reflects the areas in which the presence of Arameans or of their language, Aramaic, in the first millennium BCE is visible. Arameans (including the Aramaic languages) in Syria, Palestine, Mesopotamia, and Egypt cannot be treated as a single entity but have to be carefully distinguished. The contributions in this volume show that identifying "Arameans" and defining pertinent identity markers is a difficult task. Interactions between Arameans, including their languages, and their neighbors were complex and depended on specific cultural and historical circumstances.
This volume comprises the conference proceedings of the international and interdisciplinary conference held in Leipzig from November 9 to 11, 2015. Scholars from different research areas present masks from Egypt, Israel/Palestine, Syria, Mesopotamia, Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Greece, mainly from the third to the first millennium BCE. The masks are analyzed from archaeological, iconographical, anthropological, philological, and theological perspectives. In many cases, the masks refer to gods, ancestors, spirits, and are used as a means to communicate between human beings and supernatural powers. Masks belong to the human condition and seem to be the international and intercultural answer to one of the most existential questions of human life. In addition, the volume includes an archaeological catalogue of the masks from Israel/Palestine of the Neolithic Age until the Persian Period.

The Jehuite Dynasty ruled more than ninety years (841–747 BCE) in the Kingdom of Israel, the longest dynasty in the history of the Northern Kingdom. Under the five kings of the dynasty, Israel was thrown into the arena of the regional political struggles and experienced the time of an unprecedented upheaval and then enjoyed great prosperity. The Aramaeans under Hazael and Ben-Hadad of Damascus and the Assyrians from the north Mesopotamia had great influence on the history of the dynasty. This book is the result of a comprehensive and updated historical study on this significant dynasty. By consulting all the available Assyrian, Aramaic, Hebrew, and Moabite inscriptions and recent archaeological data, this study radically evaluates the historical authenticity of the biblical text of 2 Kings and some parts of the Books of Amos and Hosea and integrates the results into the historical discussion. The study reveals the great importance of this dynasty in the history of the Northern Kingdom as a turning point in its policy toward the Neo-Assyrian Empire and will contribute toward understanding the history of Syria-Palestine in the 9th–8th centuries BCE.
The breakthrough of the alphabetic script early in the first millennium BCE coincides with the appearance of several new languages and civilizations in ancient Syria-Palestine. Together, they form the cultural setting in which ancient Israel, the Hebrew Bible, and, transformed by Hellenism, the New Testament took shape. This book contains concise yet thorough and lucid overviews of ancient Near Eastern languages united by alphabetic writing and illuminates their interaction during the first 1000 years of their attestation. All chapters are informed by the most recent scholarship, contain fresh insights, provide numerous examples from the most pertinent sources, and share a clear historical framework that makes it easier to trace processes of contact and convergence in this highly diversified speech area. They also address non-specialists. The following topics are discussed: Alphabetic writing (A. Millard), Ugaritic (A. Gianto), Phoenician and Hebrew (H. Gzella), Transjordanian languages (K. Beyer), Old and Imperial Aramaic (M. Folmer), Epigraphic South Arabian (R. Hasselbach), Old Persian (M. de Vaan/A. Lubotsky), Greek (A. Willi).
Early Urbanizations in the Levant examines the first cycle of urbanization, collapse and reurbanization in the 4th-2nd millennium BCE Levant. The core of the study is a detailed analysis of settlement fluctuations and material culture development in the Hula Valley, at the crossroads between modern Israel, Syria and Lebanon. Focusing on field data and a close reading of the material text, the book emphasizes the variety exhibited in patterns of cultural and social change when small, densely settled regions are carefully scrutinized. Using the concepts of time-space edges and shifting loci of power, the study suggests new scenarios to explain changes in the regional archaeological record, and considers the implications these have for existing reconstructions of social evolution in the larger region. The Levant is shown to be composed of a fluid mosaic of polities that moved along multiple, if often parallel, paths towards and away from complexity. This book should be of interest to anyone studying the archaeology of early state formation in the Near East, particularly in areas of æsecondaryÆ urbanization - Palestine, Syria and Anatolia. With its detailed consideration of settlement patterns and ceramic production, it is also indispensable for the study of the early history of the two major sites in the area, Tel Dan and Tel Hazor, being the first attempt to integrate the results of excavations at these sites with the information obtained in archaeological surveys of the valley which sustained them.
