The German Society for the Exploration of Palestine is organizing a conference on “Representations of Goddesses and Gods in Palestine” in Mainz from December 2 to 4, 2022. The conference venue, the Erbacher Hof, is located in the center of Mainz, close to the cathedral. Fourteen lectures by researchers from Germany and abroad will deal with the topic of representations of gods for different time periods from the Chalcolithic to the Roman period. In addition, two key notes will present results of recent excavation projects in the region. For the first time, the Helga Weippert Prize for the promotion of young scientists will be awarded during the conference. The program of the public conference, to which all interested parties are cordially invited, can be found here. Registration for the conference can be made through the Akademie Erbacher Hof.
