Crellin, R. Review of “Scribal Tools in Ancient Israel” by Philip Zhakevich. Ancient Near Eastern Studies https://doi.org/10.17863/CAM.69250
The present monograph, henceforth STAI, is the outworking of the author’s doctoral dissertation (p. xi). It sets out with the twin aims (pp. 1–2) of: Providing a lexicographical analysis of Biblical Hebrew terms relating to the technology of writing in Ancient Israel, specifically, the period “after the alphabetic writing system had fully taken root”, i.e. Iron Age II (p. 1); Establishing the primary source of Ancient Israel’s writing practices, whether Egypt to the southwest, or Assyria to the east.
The present author’s contribution was completed as part of ongoing research under the CREWS project (Contexts of and Relations between Early Writing Systems), funded by the European Research Council under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No 677758).
