Mari and the Early Israelite Experience

Abraham Malamat

Schweich Lectures on Biblical Archaeology

In 1936 a French archaeological expedition to Mari, the capital of a kingdom on the Middle Euphrates in Syria, uncovered an archive of some 25,000 cuneiform tablets. Examining this huge corpus of Old Babylonian documents, Malamet shows how they reveal a vivid picture of Mesopotamia at a time when the Israelites were in their earliest formative stage.
