Abstract The study of Israelite religion in its wider cultural and religious context has come once again to occupy a central place in the disciplines of Old Testament study. In Germany in particular this represents a partial shift in scholarly priorities: elsewhere, for example in the United States under the leadership of F. M. Cross, the comparative perspective has been more pervasive, as it was earlier in Scandinavia. Among the many aspects of this approach which could be examined, the article gives special attention to new publications of texts and reference works, the contribution of the Ugaritic texts, other West Semitic inscriptions and iconographical evidence to the history of Yahwism, and research into deities other than Yahweh who were worshipped in Israel.
