I have been invited by the University of Uppsala to give a lecture on new Aramaic divination texts.
As stated on the poster, the lecture will discuss unpublished ostraca discovered in Maresha, the ancient capital of Idumaea, during archaeological excavations led by Ian Stern. The edition of these inscriptions is being prepared by Esther Eshel and myself.
Following this lecture, I will stay for a few days in Uppsala to conduct a research project on other magical texts, such as the bowl represented on the poster.
I am looking forward to it! 🙂
