Dr. David Neiman on the Urgeschichte


Dr. David Neiman (1921-2004) was professor of Jewish theology at Boston College where he organized the Institute of Biblical Archaeology. He specialized in archaeology, biblical studies, Jewish history and Catholic-Jewish relations and dug at several archaeological sites in Israel.

In the four-part study Discovering Genesis and the Origins of the Biblical World, the late Dr. David Neiman, explores the first 11 chapters of Genesis to see how the Biblical writers grappled with the fundamental questions: Where do we come from? Who are we? What makes us different? How did civilization come about? Why do we die? This DVD set is available to purchase here.

Dr. Neiman organized Boston College’s Institute of Biblical Archaeology and participated in nearly a dozen archaeological excavations in Israel. He was the author of Domestic Relations in Antiquity (Little Acorns Press, 1994) as well as a commentary and selected translation of the Book of Job (Massada, 1972). He also wrote several articles for the Encyclopedia Judaica. His lectures on the Book of Genesis were delivered in 2000 at the University of Judaism in Bel Air, California.
