Excerpt from Archæologia Nova Cæsarea, 1909, Vol. 3 T ime applies to human history only, and when it is to be applied to what we know as ancient human history, the greatest caution is called for, as many have found to their sorrow, when the facts of the earth have calmly contradicted the vagaries of dreamers. Nature has never recognized what man knows as time. Always existent, but ever changing, her career extends backward throughout the eternity of the past, as it will continue throughout the eternity of the future. Man's career, as yet, is but as a fleeting shadow on the surface of the sea, and only anapproximate date need concern the archaeologist who eu deavors to trace this career. To endeavor to date it as we do that which has happened within recorded human history, to speak of years, centuries, or even milleniums, is the bane of archaeological research Only the most indefinite phrases, as old anc very old, should be used. It is the business only of the archaeologist to trace the sequence of event, to arrange in proper order, if he can, the sadly mixed, dis jointed and exasperatingly confused facts and fragments thereof. And set thein forth again in orderly array. This is his proper work. No cherished theory, no adherence to long - settled convictions of one's days of ignorance should deter him from demonstrating, when opportunity affords, that this is older than that, and the invention of a simple form preceded the elaboration of a complex one. Who, standing in the shadow of a patriarchal oak, will attempt to Count its leaves, or trace the outlines of its tiniest twigs, or follow each sinuosity of its wrinkled bark? It is the tree as a whole that bids us pause, and there is ever enough to excite our wonder and call forth our admiration without asking the question, when was the first acorn evolved from some Quercian ancestor? Enough to know there are oaks, and for long have been; enough to know there are men, and for ages long have been, and, as. A fellow feeling makes us wondrous kind, at times, it also makes some of us wondrous curious at other times; so, to inquire into the career of those who preceded us is. Not unnatural, nor, perhaps, without some use. T here is always satisfac tion in the possession of a truth, even if we can make no special use of it. Certainly we never know when a truth may come into play. Man is an incident in the progress of events, and, as such, is of some interest; but, if we associate him with time absolute or time relative, as. We must an. Individual and his period of existence, we are led into a. Trackless wilderness, from which there is no escape.

Excerpt from Archaeologia Nova Caesarea, 1907 It is scarcely complimentary to the average intelligence that those who testify in the role of experts should offer negative evidence as of greater value than that which is positive. Unsuccessful themselves in the finding of arti facts in place, after careful search - not only the asserted search, but the care attending it, problematical - they would feign blot out of existence, by a toss of the head or scratch of the pen, all evidence of man's antiquity. Success has attended these unscrupulous efforts far more generally than should have been the case, or would have been, had the sub j ect been treated honestly, as questions purely geological or historical are supposed to be.

Trade and Exchange

Long before the advent of the global economy, foreign goods were transported, traded, and exchanged through myriad means, over short and long distances. Archaeological tools for identifying foreign objects, such as provenance studies, stylistic analyses, and economic documentary sources reveal non-local materials in historic and prehistoric assemblages. Trade and exchange represent more than mere production and consumption. Exchange of goods also led to an exchange of cultural and social experiences. Discoveries of the sources of alien objects surpass archaeological expectations of exchange and geographic distance, revealing important technological advances. With thirteen case studies from around the world, this comprehensive work provides a fresh perspective on material culture studies. Evidence of ongoing negotiation between individuals, villages, and nations provides insight into the impact of trade on the micro-, meso-, and macro-level. Covering a wide array of time periods and areas, this work will be of interest to archaeologists, anthropologists, and anyone working in cultural studies.

Condensing research concerning questions of religion which encompass the social history of ideas and the religious uses of language, this book deals with three questions: the relationship of the Mishnah to Scripture, the relationship of the religious ideas people hold to the world in which they live, and the religious meaning of the formalization of language that characterizes the Mishnah in particular. In discussing how the Mishnah relates to Scripture - in the (later) mythic language of Rabbinic Judaism: "the oral Torah" to "the written Torah" - a complete analysis is presented, based on a systematic application of a single taxonomic program. Then an examination is made of how the stages in the unfolding of the Halakhah of the Mishnah relate to the principal events of the times, which delineate those stages. Here focus is given to those pre-70 C.E. components of the Halakhah that later come to the surface in the Mishnah, but discussion extends to the periods from the destruction of the Temple in 70 C.E. to the Bar Kokhba War, concluded in ca. 135 C.E., then from the reconstruction, 135 C.E., to the closure of the Mishnah, 200 C.E. Finally attention is given to methods of interpreting the rhetorical forms of the Mishnah in the context of the social culture laid bare by the socio-linguistics of the documents concerned.

Building Jewish in the Roman East

Archaeology has unearthed the glories of ancient Jewish buildings throughout the Mediterranean. But what has remained shrouded is what these buildings meant. Building Jewish first surveys the architecture of small rural villages in the Galilee in the early Roman period before examining the development of synagogues as "Jewish associations." Finally, Building Jewish explores Jerusalem's flurry of building activity under Herod the Great in the first century BCE. Richardson's careful work not only documents the culture that forms the background to any study of Second Temple Judaism and early Christianity, but he also succeeds in demonstrating how architecture itself, like a text, conveys meaning and thus directly illuminates daily life and religious thought and practice in the ancient world.

America's foremost scholar on formative Judaism examines the issue of gender as it appears in the corpus of rabbinic literature and arrives at some provocative conclusions. While the structure of Judaism based on the dual Torah is clearly masculine in orientation, the substructure--the religious system that shapes its values and perception--is androgynous, an individual conjunction of genders. In fact, the higher values, as defined by the relevant writings, prove to be feminine. -- from https://books.google.com (Nov. 10, 2015).
