A New Jerusalem in Babylon*
Opens: February 25, for 10 meetings (2 lectures per meeting), Wednesdays 16:00-19:00
The Village of the Jews, Al-Yahudu, was the Babylonian name for Jerusalem in Judah, as well as a town of Judean exiles in Babylonia, now known to us from a new archive of documents that will have their world premier at the BLMJ this winter.
Course participants will have the unique opportunity to explore these phenomenal documents. Reading from the original cuneiform text, we will experience first hand the lives and times of the Judean exiles following their family life and their working life in the date plantation, barley fields and animals. no previous knowledge of Akkadian or cuneiform required
