Summary
"The essays in this volume highlight the ways that ancient Near Eastern iconography can inform exegesis. They tackle two thorny issues: 1) how images reflect the cultures that produce them and 2) the nature of the relationship between images and texts, both within discrete cultures and among different cultures."--Provided by publisher
