The calendrical framework of the priestly flood story in light of a New Akkadian text from Ugarit (RS 94.2953)

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

The only Priestly pre-Exodus narrative to be framed in explicitly chronological terms is the Flood account. Here, in light of a recently published Akkadian text from Ugarit (RS 94.2953) and Berossus' version of the Flood story, I suggest that in this unique case P may be based on earlier models that were in possession of a precise temporal framework.
