The Archaeology and History of Jerusalem in Biblical Times, by Israël Finkelstein
Cette conférence sera traduite par un interprète.
The lecture will look at the most up-to-date archaeological finds in order to reconstruct the history of Jerusalem in the biblical times – The First Temple period. The main issues to be discussed are the location of the ancient mound of Jerusalem, the nature of Jerusalem in the time of David and Solomon, the gradual processes of expansion of the city until it became the largest urban center in the Levant and the reasons for this growth.
