Terracotta Female Figurines and Goddesses in Early Israelite Religion

Dr P R S Moorey FBA delivered three Schweich Lectures on 30 November and 1 December 2001 at the British Academy. His theme was the relevance of terracotta imagery to understanding the beliefs of ordinary people in Canaan, broadly the area covered by modern Israel and Palestine, from c.1650 to 1150 BC, and in the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah in the same region under the Divided Monarchy from c.925 to 586 BC. Particular attention was paid to representations of goddesses and women.
