I am writing to announce a new web site, “Inscriptions from the Land of Israel.” The primary goal of this site is to create a searchable database of inscriptions, along with their contextual information (e.g., images and geographical data), of published inscriptions that are roughly within the geographical boundaries of the modern State of Israel and that date from between 500 BCE – 640 CE. The database can be searched according to a broad range of criteria, and the text of the inscriptions can be searched in both the original language (Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Aramaic) and English translation. The site also includes bibliographies and research and teaching resources connected to these inscriptions.
Presently in the database are only some inscriptions from Caeserea and Hammat Gader (none in Hebrew). It will be regularly updated.
The site can be found at:
