Based on the Tbinger Atlas of the Near and Middle East, the maps collected in this atlas were previously only available as single sheets. Here, they appear for the first time in a bound atlas, making this valuable study material readily available.
On a total of 29 large format map sheets (each approximatley 28.25 x 19.5 inches when unfolded) the historical geography of the biblical countries is documented with unique precision and extensive detail. Particular maps have been revised and supplemented for the Bible atlas. A map for the archaeology and history of Sinai has been newly created and is published here for the first time. In addition, an index has been specially compiled; it is separately bound and can be removed from the atlas so that it can conveniently be used together with the maps.
