Abstract The 'Life of Moses' is beyond the range of historiography. Nevertheless, several elements of the Moses traditions rooted in the northern Israelite heritage probably go back to the earliest history of (Proto-) Israel, partly even to a figure called 'Moses' or to groups in the realm of its Wirkung. These elements are mainly the name 'Moses' itself and the Exodus tradition on the one hand, Moses' relations to Midian and the tradition which relates the god YHWH to Teman/Seir on the other hand. With regard to the last aspect, the epigraphic evidence from Kuntillet Ajrud proves to be of major importance.
