This publication deals with ancient Egyptian amulets excavated since 2005 in Israel/Palestine. It also presents objects excavated earlier that have been previously inaccessible. To make the catalogue complete, the volume includes amulets kept in museums or private collections in Israel or Europe. The plates show all accessible Egyptian amulets found in Israel/Palestine since 1898 (a total of 3239 items). The author provides a systematic overview of the repertoire of Egyptian amulets from Israel/Palestine, dating from the Late Bronze age to the Roman period.The main emphasis is on the visual presentation of the amulets, the interpretation of archaeological data and the systematic comparison with selected amulets from the wider Mediterranean area (Egypt, the north-eastern Mediterranean coast, Asia Minor, Cyprus, Rhodes, Malta, Greece, Old Italy, Sardinia, Ibiza, Iberia and Carthage). Alongside Othmar Keelös Corpus of stamp seal amulets, also published in OBO Series Archaeologica, this is one of the very rare publications which can claim comprehensive coverage of a particular class of archaeological artefacts from Israel/Palestine.

Reviews    
»Es ist Christian Herrmann zu danken, dass er in seinem Pfarrhaus in Gachnang neben seinen beruflichen Tätigkeiten seit vielen Jahren akribisch diese Kleinkunst gesammelt und übersichtlich präsentiert hat. Damit steht ein wertvolles und noch immer nicht ausreichend wahrgenommenes Material für die Religionsgeschichte Palästinas/Israels vorbildlich aufbereitet zur Verfügung und harrt einer umfassenden ikonographischen und religiösen Auswertung.«
Zeitschrift für alttestamentliche Wissenschaft (Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Zwickel), Heft: 2 (2017)
