Welcome! This website was constructed to supply resources for an undergraduate class at Wofford College, called “Gods of the Biblical World: Polytheism, Magic, and Israelite Religion.” But you’re invited to look around even if you’re just interested in the topic!

The idea is to bring together materials, site names, and sources relating to the religion and archaeology of ancient Israel and Judah’s neighbors in the first millennium BCE: the Arameans, Phoenicians, Philistines, Ammonites, Moabites, and Edomites. Use the menu at the top of the page to start exploring.
