Smiting the Old Gods: D.C.-Area Lecture May 18, 2014

Mark Smith and Elizabeth Bloch-Smith present the roots of Israelite monotheism

The Washington, D.C.-area Biblical Archaeology Forum (BAF) and Biblical Archaeology Society of Northern Virginia (BASONOVA) (in conjunction with the Foundation for Jewish Studies) will be hosting the lecture “The Roots of Israelite Monotheism: Evidence from Archaeology & Texts” on Sunday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m. at Rockville, Maryland’s B’nai Israel Congregation.

Mark Smith, a Biblical scholar from New York University (NYU), joins Elizabeth Bloch-Smith, a field archaeologist from NYU and the Jewish Theological Seminary, to explore the origins of monotheism as practiced in ancient Israel. They will examine material evidence and analyze critical texts to support a new theory explaining where Israelite monotheism actually came from.
