Egypt, Israel, and the Ancient Mediterranean World: Studies in Honor of Donald B. Redford

By Gary N. Knoppers; Antoine Hirsch | Go to book overview

INTRODUCTION

It is a delight to witness the publication of a Festschrift to honor Donald Bruce Redford in advance of his seventieth birthday. This volume of essays on topics related to Don's interests in Egyptian history, Israelite history, and the contacts between Egypt and the rest of the ancient Mediterranean world during the later periods (New Kingdom onward) is a token of our gratitude to Don for all of his many contributions to our respective fields.1 As a true generalist, Don represents a rare and vanishing breed in Egyptological and ancient Near Eastern studies. His intellectual interests are not limited to a single discipline, nor is his scholarship confined to work on a single civilization. Don's training is historical, philological, epigraphic, and archaeological in nature. In keeping with his wide-ranging education, Don's publications have had a substantial impact in the fields of Egyptology, ancient Near Eastern history, archaeology, and biblical studies.

His dissertation, written under the direction of R.A. Caminos of Brown University and Ronald Williams of the University of Toronto, dealt with the chronology of the 18th Dynasty. This collection of seven studies was later published by the University of Toronto Press (1967) under the

In editing this volume, I want to acknowledge the helpful assistance of three
graduate students in the History department at Penn State: Deirdre Fulton, Matthew
Adams, and Eugene Shaw-Colyer.
