    Default The Bible, the Hittites, and the Construction of the "Other"

    The Bible, the Hittites, and the Construction of the "Other" (Need to be registered to download)

    by Billie Jean Collins (Emory University)

    Attempts to explain the presence of Hittites in the Bible have failed to find sufficient evidence to connect the biblical Hittites unequivocally to the Late Bronze Age Anatolian empire of the Hittites. Those who view the biblical accounts as having historical merit look in particular to the possibility of a mass migration of Luwian-speaking population groups into Syria and Palestine after the collapse of Hittite power. Others have taken a more skeptical approach, viewing the biblical references to Hittites as rhetorical or even as a phonetic coincidence and thus hav- ing nothing to do with the Hittites of the Late Bronze Age. A review of the evidence in light of recent advances in understanding the origins of the biblical text, however, opens up a new possibility for unraveling the enigma of the Hittites in the Bible.
