Overview

The Archaeological Center Iconography and Epigraphy Collection offers epigraphic material that is crucial for understanding the past—specifically biblical history—through studies from three private collections. Private collections are an important resource, since controlled excavations yield only a small fraction of the artifacts that have been unearthed to date. Chance finds and earlier looting have brought many more artifacts into circulation—but not into the hands of academics.

Authors Robert Deutsch and Michael Heltzer work with private collectors to salvage the academic value of the otherwise “silent” artifacts in their possession. In Forty New Ancient West Semitic Inscriptions, Deutsch and Heltzer state, “The real value of an epigraphic find is not the item itself but its publication. Once the item has been published, it survives far beyond the item itself.” The Archaeological Center Iconography and Epigraphy Collection presents the fruit of their efforts.

In the Logos editions, these valuable volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
