Journal of Ancient Near Eastern Religions
The Journal of Ancient Near Eastern Religions (JANER) focuses on the religions of the area commonly referred to as the Ancient Near East encompassing Egypt, Mesopotamia, Syria-Palestine, and Anatolia, as well as immediately adjacent areas under their cultural influence, from prehistoric times onward to the beginning of the common era. JANER thus explicitly aims to include not only the Biblical, Hellenistic and Roman world as part of Ancient Near Eastern civilization but also the impact of its religions on the western Mediterranean. JANER is the only scholarly journal specifically and exclusively addressing this range of topics. JANER is a peer-refereed journal and is intended to provide an international scholarly forum for studies on all aspects of ancient religions.
