Religious space in the collective memory. Cult activity during Iron Age in Southern Levant
Περίληψη:
The Iron Age in Southern Levant is a period of changes that cultivated many cultures and
traditions. From the fall of the Canaanite cities during the end of the 2nd mill. in Iron Age, I and the Israelite tribes' settlements in Iron Age II, an amalgam of diversity was created. Using the examples of the temple remains all across Israel, Jordan, and the West Bank or Palestine, we come across to specifically chosen places that people knew how to use and adapt to their needs as places of cult. Thus, this is an attempt to present the cultural background of the religious structures which were part of the wider cultic landscape of the time. Chronologically, this happened between the 12th and 6th centuries BC, namely from the end of the Bronze Age system to the Babylonian conquest. Somehow, the places mentioned in this thesis had been features of collective memory, not just for the locals living in these lands, but for many other around the world who travel across just so they can step on the holy lands of the Temple Mound, or emerge themselves in the Hammat Ma' springs in Jordan. As a crossroad, the Southern Levant offers a frame for studying the geopolitical processes of transition. The geographical boundaries of the study are defined by the junction of three prominent religions that appeared in the area: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam that passed these roads and, even today, thousands of years later, these places are still battlefields of cultural diversity and violence. The Southern Levant is in such a position that every road from east to the west leads through these lands. Most of the stories are based on the Old Testament, and even though we cannot use them as a reliable scientific platform, they are the best-written stories of local communities that we can find.
