Were there figurines in Yehud during the Achaemenid period, and in particular in Jerusalem?

Produktbeschreibung
Were there figurines in Yehud during the Achaemenid period, and in particular in Jerusalem? A positive answer to this question disproves the general consensus about the absence of figurines in Yehud, which is built on the assumption that the figurines excavated in Judah/Yehud are chronologically indicative for Iron Age II in this area (aside from a few typological exceptions). Ephraim Stern and others have taken this alleged absence of figurines as indicative of Jewish monotheism s rise. Izaak J. de Hulster refutes this `no figurines - monotheism paradigm by detailed study of the figurines from Yigal Shiloh s excavation in the `City of David (especially their contexts in Stratum 9), providing ample evidence for the presence of figurines in post-587/586 Jerusalem. The author further reflects on the paradigm s premises in archaeology, history, the history of religion, theology, and biblical studies, and particularly in coroplastics (figurine studies).
