Orbis Biblicus et Orientalis -
To consider images as sources in their own right for the history of ancient Near Eastern culture and religion; to correlate them, when ever appropriate, with biblical texts; thus, to have introduced a new way of looking and reading to biblical studies – these may be the most salient characteristics of Othmar Keel’s internationally recognized scholarship. The papers published in this volume express the gratitude of many students and friends to a teacher and colleague with whom they have shared many years of inspiring research partnership.
