Summary
In this study, Joachim Schaper investigates the transformation of the pre-exilic Yahweh religion into the monotheism of the post-exilic period which was triggered by a new constellation of key media: writing, images, and money. He thus reconstructs Judah's religious history in its most important epoch and one of the key developments in the religious history of humanity.
