This volume presents the results of the 1995 international seminar on the history and archaeology of the Sea Peoples. The 17 comprehensive articles, written by leading scholars in the fields of Egyptology, Hittitology, biblical studies, and Aegean, Anatolian, and Near Eastern archaeology, examine current methodologies and interpretations concerning the origin, migration, and settlement of the Sea Peoples against the overwhelming new archaeological record from sites throughout the Mediterranean basin and the Levant.

The topic of the congress anthology Keimelion is the consumer behaviour of the Aegean elite population, including strategies such as conspicuous consumption, through the period of the Mycenaean palace states to the post-palatial period and the new formation of the Greek world in the first millennium B.C. New interpretations of the Homeric epics as well as the numerous archaeological finds of recent years have promoted an increased understanding of the elite population of these periods. Among other things, this group defined itself through conspicuous consumption in order to distinguish itself as elite from the rest of the population and their neighbours. At the same time these elitist strategies were used to secure the following of the common people, and in diplomacy, to display prominence and establish international contacts.

Of all the writings held sacred by the world's religions, only the Bible presents a message linked to geography. This is not just the location of religious centers but the experience of a people in its land, a people that has insisted on its God-given right to self-identity throughout the ages and in defiance of all forces that sought to deny it. All Jews and Christians who profess to find the source of their faith in these Scriptures look to the experiences of that people depicted in the Bible as examples and role models for their search after the Divine will and for their moral conduct among men. The religious experiences of that ancient people took place in relation to a geographical setting, generally a small postage stamp on the face of the globe, a patch of terrain in the southern part of the eastern Mediterranean littoral. The Bible is replete with geographical information, not as a guidebook for travelers or a textbook on geography, but often almost incidental to the message. Yet without the geography, that message is often obscured or vitiated for the uninformed reader. The present atlas seeks to introduce the reader to the geographical elements that can help to make real the social, historical and spiritual experience of the People of the Book. - Publisher.

This volume provides a series of contributions on the crucial aspects relating to the Bible and the Late Bronze Age period. The volume is introduced with a background essay surveying the main areas of history and current scholarship relating to Late Bronze Age Palestine and to the Egyptian New Kingdom (Dynasties 18-20) domination of the region, as well as the question of the biblical account of the same geographical area and historical period. Specific chapters address a range of key concerns: the history of Egypt's dealing with Canaan is surveyed in chapters by Grabbe and Dijkstra. The Amarna texts are also dealt with by Lemche, Mayes and Grabbe. The archaeology is surveyed by van der Steen. The Merenptah Stela mentioning Israel is of considerable interest and is discussed especially by Dijkstra. This leads on to the burning question of the origins of Israel which several of the contributors address. Another issue is whether the first Israelite communities practised egalitarianism, an issue taken up by Guillaume, with a response by Kletter.

Im Zentrum der Darstellung steht die Frage, welche Modelle des Umgangs mit Menschen, die nicht zur "Wir-Gruppe" der Israeliten gehoren, in den Dokumenten des alten Israel vorzufinden sind. Dabei werden Antworten auf folgende Fragen gesucht: Wie sind diese Zeugnisse religionsgeschichtlich einzuordnen? Und wie sind sie theologisch zu interpretieren? Die Untersuchung erhalt ihr spezifisches Profil dadurch, dass auch samtliche Texte und bildlichen Darstellungen aus dem assyrischen Raum in ihren Aussagen zum Umgang mit Fremden analysiert werden. Zudem ermoglicht ein einfuhrender Uberblick uber die soziologische Diskussion des Themas die Verknupfung des altorientalischen Befunds mit dem allgemein-anthropologischen Diskurs uber die "Fremden." Die hier erzielten Resultate bilden eine wichtige Voraussetzung zur Klarung der Frage, welchen Beitrag die Bibel zu einer ethisch verantworteten Bewaltigung heutiger Problemstellungen im Umgang mit Fremden leisten kann.
