Mandel Institute of Jewish Studies Publications Shnaton

Shnaton is an academic journal devoted to research of all aspects of the Bible and of the Ancient Near East relating to the Bible and the history of the Jewish People in ancient times. The contributors to Shnaton, which appears in Hebrew, represent the cream of Jewish scholarship in Israel and abroad. Readers are presented with original articles dealing with the entire range of topics currently under discussion in Biblical and Ancient Near Eastern studies: texts and their interpretation, beliefs and opinions, history and historiography, religion and ritual, society and state and more. Shnaton contains articles, short commentaries and critical reviews, as well as surveys of new literature in the field. The first eleven volumes were edited by Professor Moshe Weinfeld.
