The Invention of History in Ancient Judah and the Formation of the Hebrew Bible
This paper deals with the question of the origins of historiography in ancient Judah. It claims that the first historiographical work (although not in the modern sense of the term) is the so-called Deuteronomistic History (DtrH), which in its “exilic edition” seeks to explain the fall of Jerusalemand the destruction of the Temple. In doing so, it also prepares the way for a monotheistic understanding of Yhwh, who was worshipped during the Israelite and Judean monarchies as a national deity. The DtrH also marks an important step in the formation of the Hebrew Bible. In the Persian period, Deuteronomy was separated from the books of Josh-Kgs and became the conclusion of the Pentateuch, whereas Josh-Kgs were reworked to fit into the “Prophets”.
