John Anderson has a post on masseboth (standing stones), which are important archaeological evidence about ancient Israel, and raise interesting questions both about Israelite “monotheism” and aniconism.
Complete with pictures!
Thanks for noting this, James. I have a great many more pictures, I just didn't go through the task of uploading them all! This post is also a very very very scaled down view of a paper I wrote on the stones for our Ph.D. colloquium in iconography here at Baylor a few years back.I do invite yourself, and others to read and comment. It is a fascinating topic that I have yet to nail down!
