The first volume of the RIAB Minerva Center publication series – “Research on Israel and Aram in Biblical Times” (RIAB), which is published by Mohr Siebeck (of Tübingen), as a sub-series of the “Oriental Religions in Antiquity” (ORA) series, is about to appear.
The volume, entitled – Researches on Israel and Aram: Autonomy, Interdependence and Related Issues. Proceedings of the First Annual RIAB Center Conference, Leipzig, June 2016, is edited by A. Berlejung and A. Maeir (center co-directors). It represents not only the proceedings of the first annual conference of the center (and two more are currently in preparation), but hopefully the first of various volumes relating to the topics of the center.
