Re: Nabonidus


I am heavily into the topic of the origins of the Daniel stories. I 
am trying to write a dissertation on the background of Daniel--its 
mileu--and the origin and redaction of the tales figures into this.

I would be happy to keep in touch and have an ongoing discussion!

What have you read so far on the topic?
