dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this paper is to examine agriculture as it is found in the literatures of Ugarit and early Israel. Much work has been done in the field of Ugaritic and Old Testament studies which attempts to draw parallels and offer reconstructions of the relationship between the Old Testament and the Ras Shamra texts. This paper does not claim to offer new material in this direction, but rather to classify and analyze existing observations within the parameter of agriculture. This is done in an effort to better understand an aspect that was so fundamental to the experiences of early Israelites, particularly as they tried to settle a foreign land in the wake of the conquest of Canaan.en_US
