Example text

Thus, another famous German scholar, H. G. A. Ewald, could write in typically Rankean fashion in the middle of the nineteenth century that his ultimate aim as a historian oflsrael was "the knowledge of what really happened-not what was only related and handed down by tradition, but what was actual fact. "38 If it was generally agreed that the The Death of Biblical History 25 biblical traditions in their current form date from an era well after most of the events they claim to describe, then it was incumbent on those people who accepted this new model, with its emphasis on primary sources-and especially eyewitness accounts, "objective facts," and external corroboration-to demonstrate how these traditions could function, at least in part, as reliable sources for the historian.

A5 a careful reading of the book of Joshua reveals, Noth claimed, no such unified Israel existed before the time of the Israelite league. The various tribes oflsrael did not, in fact, all settle in the land at the same time. Since the association together of the earlier independent traditions is only a secondary phenomenon, then-reflecting the perspective of a later time-the historical outline that the material presents must be considered historically unreliable. Only with the occupation of Palestine do we have a fully united "Israel" at all, and therefore only from this point can the real history of Israel take its departure.

Is the fact that the Bible is the only source of information we possess a sufficient ground for using it? If so in the case of Solomon, why not also in the case of Abraham? Conversely, if we can say nothing about Abraham, should we say anything about Solomon? Whitelam thinks not; indeed a very short step takes one from Miller and Hayes's "A cautious historian might be inclined to ignore ... " to the suggestion that the responsible historian ought to ignore the biblical text, because it presents an imagined past rather than a real one.
