By the Rivers of Babylon

In the history of Judaism, the Babylonian exile constitutes a major watershed. The social, institutional and cultic organization of the Second Temple differed markedly from the forms that had existed in the kingdom of Judah before the diaspora. The project’s aim is to engage in a comparative study between the Second Temple of Jerusalem and the Babylonian temple cult as evidenced by recently disclosed cuneiform records.
