Chapter Summary

The textual analysis of Joshua 9:1-13:7 revealed that these chapters can be viewed as a piece of ancient Hebrew historiography that was composed in Judah between the late 10th and the early 8th century bce with help of Late Bronze memories. The artefactual analysis of the archaeological remains of the cities mentioned in this textual unit and of some non-biblical texts showed how the Cisjordanian Southern Levant developed during the Late Bronze and Iron Ages. This chapter creates an interdisciplinary dialogue between the results of these ?textual? and ?artefactual? monologues. First, Joshua 9:1-13:7 is viewed against the background of history. The chapter explores the historiographical character of a part of the biblical history writing of Israel?s settlement in Canaan in order to answer the question for the relation between the ideology and the antiquarian intent in Joshua 9:1-13:7.

Keywords: archaeological; biblical; Canaan; Cisjordanian Southern Levant; Hebrew; historiography; Israel; Joshua 9; Judah
