Based upon archaeological evidence, Hallote (Jewish studies, Purchase College, SUNY) examines cultural practices and beliefs relating to the dead in ancient Israel. She contends that despite the Mosaic prohibition against the worship of any god but Yahweh, a Cult of the Dead persisted for centuries among the common people. She further argues that evidence from burial sites shows that the various ancient religions in the land of the Bible had many similarities with one another. Annotation c.
