Product Description

In her new, provocative study Tilde Binger offers an exhaustive yet concise survey of Ugaritic (epic, ritual and sacrificial) and biblical texts. Binger raises the critical question of the relationship of Asherah to the God of Israel. The remarkable results are: that Asherah of Syria -Palestine is not a name, but a title; the Asherah of the Old Testament was indeed the consort of Yahweh; and that discussion of these comlicated texts-groups demands great caution.

Publisher's Description

A comprehensive discussion of texts concerning the goddess Asherah, as she is portrayed in texts from Ugarit (both epic and ritual texts, as well as the lists of sacrifices), Israel (the Khirbet el-Qom and Kuntillet Ajrud inscriptions) and the Old Testament. The main theses of the book are that two or more divinities carrying the same name but separated by several hundred years are not necessarily to be identified; that Asherah is probably not a name, but rather a title, carried by the main goddess in ancient Syria-Palestine; that the Asherah of the Old Testament and the Israelite texts was indeed the consort of Yahweh; and that the relationship between the text-groups discussed is of a nature that demands great caution, if one wishes to work comparatively with them.
