The World of the Aramaeans is a three-volume collection of definitive essays about the Aramaeans and the biblical world of which they were a part. Areas of interest include the language, epigraphy and history of the Aramaeans of Syria as well of their neighbors, the Israelites, Phoenicians, Ammonites, Moabites and Edomites.
The language and literature that is used in the Bible was always a great interest to Paul-Eugène Dion and that interest is reflected in The World of the Aramaeans (3 Vols.). Dion’s work consists of biblical, historical and cultural studies which give light to the richness of the Aramaean’s world and the far reaching effects that the influence that their culture had on others. This collection also reveals the history of the regions of the Phoenicians and Aramaeans, and will be of interest to biblical scholars and anyone interested in the history of the ancient Near East.
