A ‘Repertoire of Otherness’? Identities in early Iron Age Philistia

By Aren M. Maeir


Recent study of the Philistine culture of the Iron Age Southern Levant has enabled to suggest a much more complex and multi-faceted understanding of the origins, composition and development of this fascinating culture, first appearing in the transition between the Late Bronze and Iron Ages. In this paper, I discuss the entangled identities that can be identified in Iron Age Philistia, and caution from previous, and in some cases, contemporary, simplistic definitions and understanding of the identity matrix of the Philstines and their relations with neighboring groups and cultures
