Description: London, Continuum. 2005, First Edition. (ISBN: 0826467970). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket. 205 pages. 22 illustrations.Introduction by Matthew d'Ancona. The book is the work of a groundbreaking scholar and a major development in Christian archaeology. The site of the village described in Luke has focused excavators and biblical detectives for more than a milennium and a half. Three suggested sites have been put forward: Emmaus-Nicopolis - which is too far from Jerusalem to fit the story and was a regional capital rather than a village; Emmaus-Aby Gosh, which the crusaders believed to be the true site, but was not called Emmaus in the first century AD; Emmaus El Qubeibe, which was favoured by the Franciscans as the true site after the 15th century, but again was not called Emmaus in the first century AD. Now Thiede has produced his most dramatic find to date, and his work remains highly controversial and will cause a storm in the archaeological world when it is disclosed. On 14 December 2004 Thiede died suddenly at his home in Germany, aged 52. R3. Fine/Fine.
