Show Summary Details


Following Solomon's death in 928 BCE, his state was split into two unequal parts, to be centered on Samaria in the north and Jerusalem in the south. Two hundred years later, Assyria would put an end to the era that had started with Solomon's death, destroying Samaria's society and infrastructure and so threatening Jerusalem that its life could never again be the same. This chapter explores this troubled era.

Keywords: Samaria; Jerusalem; monarchy; Assyria
