I was on RCF radio to answer Guillaume de Clermont’s questions on “The Bible Facing Archaeology.” This interview is a follow-up to the conference I gave in Orleans on this theme; you can listen to it here:
Judaism, followed by Christianity and Islam, is often associated with the birth of monotheism. But is it really the case? Didn’t monotheism appear earlier? On the other hand, is the Bible really monotheistic? What do the earliest manuscripts reveal?

For a conference on
The Birth of Monotheism
This conference is organized by the Lions Club Montigny les 3 Villages, and will take place at Ferme du Manet, 61 avenue du Manet, 78180 Montigny-le-Bretonneux. For more information and booking, please visit the Lions Club website.
This is the title of the chapter I published in the new volume dedicated to the Young Hero. If you find this title intriguing, there’s one thing to do: read the chapter! Here it is in PDF format. Enjoy!
At the editor’s request, I wrote in Le Muséon a critical review of Jean-Claude Haelewyck’s Comparative Grammar of the Semitic Languages (Safran, 2006).
The unusual length of this recension (16 pages!) is due to the numerous problems encountered at the reading of this volume. J.-C. Haelewyck is aware of these problems and answered me with these nice words: “I wish all authors to receive such critique. You go into details while always remaining nice and constructive.”
