What is the relationship between archaeology and the Bible, between a scientific discipline (material history) and literary documents (textual history) often purporting to be sacred scripture? Though the modern scientific techniques they use are the same as those used in general archaeology, the express objective of biblical archaeologists is to recover and analyze artifacts that may illuminate the historicity of Hebrew (Old) Testament and Christian (New) Testament stories. This lecture (Part I) will focus on Old Testament archaeology. A second lecture (Part II), in the Spring of 2019, will focus on New Testament archaeology. Presented by Patrick Hunt, Ph.D., SATURDAY, March 2, 2019, at 7:00PM (doors open at 6:15PM for the wine reception). (FRI, MAR 1, IS SOLD OUT.)

Patrick Hunt believes the perceived boundaries between academic subjects are too often arbitrary and artificial, and thus explores junctions between many intersecting areas of interest across the broader humanities, sciences and the arts. Patrick has followed several of his life-long dreams--archaeologist, writer, musician, composer, poet, and art historian--for the last twenty years at Stanford University. Among many other works, he is author of Ten Discoveries that Rewrote History and the newly published Hannibal (Simon and Schuster, 2017).
