Product Description

The Dictionary of Daily Life in Biblical and Post-Biblical Antiquity is a unique reference work that provides background cultural and technical information on the world of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament from 2000 BC to approximately AD 600.

This dictionary casts light on the culture, technology, history, and politics of the periods of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament.

Written and edited by a world-class historian and a highly respected biblical scholar, with contributions by many others, this unique reference work explains details of domestic life, technology, culture, laws, and religious practices, with extensive bibliographic material for further exploration. Articles range from 5-20 pages long. Scholars, pastors, and students (and their teachers) will find this to be a useful resource for biblical study, exegesis, and sermon preparation.

This fourth volume covers 25 topics from O-Z, including: Plants and Flowers, Slavery, Taxation, Textiles, Viticulture, Wealth and Poverty, Weapons, Widows and Orphans, Wild Animals and Hunting, and more.
