Abstract :
This review article takes up a number of themes addressed in C.A. Rollston’s 2010 monograph Writing and Literacy in the World of Ancient Israel: Epigraphic Evidence from the Iron Age and considers how the discussions devoted to these topics have evolved since 2010. This survey of recent developments is accompanied by several suggestions for future investigations pertaining both to the domain of inquiry and to the methods employed in Northwest Semitic epigraphic research.
