Sanctuaries and altars located on the mountain and at its foot, and numerous remains of campsites, tell the hitherto unknown story of a sacred mountain in the heart of the desert of Exodus,
which seems to reflect with surprising precision the events and conditions described to us, albeit in mythicised form, in the Old Testament.
This mountain was a paramount cult site for desert people over the course of millenia.
The biblica narratives seem to refer to just one chapter in the history of this mountain, which appears to have been sacred even before the age of Moses.
But the wealth of astonishing archaeological discoveries go far beyond this.
The new finds mark a turning point in a long lasting discussion.
This well documented volume, which features over 200 illustrations, also helps to clarify a major question:
to what extent may we consider the biblical narrative as a source of historical documentation.
