VIRTUAL - “Man Does not live by bread alone” (Deut 8:3): Daily Life in Biblical Times

September 23, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm MST

This is an online event.

Dr. Oded Borowski
Emory University

For a very long time, archaeologists were busily investigating major biblical sites trying to recover remains related to figures mentioned in biblical stories. Related to this, they were also establishing chronologies through the study of pottery. More recently, attention was diverted to the study of daily life of the average people who lived in small rather than large sites. In this presentation we will review some topics that generally are considered aspects of daily life in the period of the Hebrew Bible. After looking at sources of information for daily life, we will look at subjects such as the economy, diet, women’s role, settlement design, religion, and more.
