This volume represents the final publication of the European Seminar in Historical Methodology. The volume reflects on the ground-breaking work of this prestigious seminar in the field of biblical history. In part one, long-term members of the seminar (Bob Becking, Ehud Ben Zvi, Philip R. Davies, Ernst Axel Knauf, Niels Peter Lemche, Thomas L Thompson) provide reflections on its work. Part two presents an opportunity for readers to benefit from contributions that have remained heretofore unpublished. This includes material on the Persian period, questions of orality and writing, and contributions on the Maccabean period. Bringing these papers together in a published form provides a fitting way to round out the work of this significant endeavour in historical methodology.

These essays are most provocative, as was the seminar itself, in advocating what we have stereotypically called "European minimalism" or the beliefs of the "Copehagen School." ...this volume is a good collection of essays to consider in the minimalist/maximalist debate and to observe their thought in particular, as are some other volumes produced by the seminar. * Catholic Biblical Quarterly *
