Hebrew In Israel | Marriage In The ANE – Learn Torah

Yoel Halevi 7 comments

What was the legal structure of marriage in the ancient world?  Here I discuss the basic ideas about marriage, and demonstrate from several texts what we know was done.  I go into what was probably legally considered marriage in ancient Israel.

The Nuzi documents and many others were never published in English, so I had to use online resources to get translations of these documents. The Nuzi documents are mostly in French, but some items have been translated for English books. The material on the Ketubah is found in the works of Urial Rapaport on 2nd temple Judaism.

Please forgive my ignorance (I’ve asked this before, but haven’t received an answer); what is ANE? You have used this before.

    I think it is a short way for saying marriage in the ancient world.
