Preview

William Foxwell Albright changed the nature of biblical archaeology from a nebulous supradiscipline focused on Assyrian texts to a field-oriented endeavor. By the late 1930s, he became the unchallenged master of the pottery of Palestine. He also revolutionized biblical studies, developing a case for the uniqueness of Hebrew revelation, particularly the monotheism of Moses.
