Have the Tombs of the Kings of Judah Been Found?: A Response

Introduction

Back to Scholar’s Study

After 24 years, we can now present a clear answer to a question raised in the pages of BAR. In the July/August 1987 issue, BAR editor Hershel Shanks considered two burial caves from the First Temple period, located on the property of the École Biblique et Archeologique Francaise in Jerusalem, and asked “Have the Tombs of the Kings of Judah Been Found?” In the following response, Fr. Riccardo Lufrani, professor of topography of Jerusalem and southern Levant at the École Biblique, endeavors to finally answer Shanks’s question.
