This is a biography of the great American Biblical scholar and proto-archaeologist Edward Robinson (1794­1863). It draws heavily upon some four hundred previously unknown letters and papers, including an extensive journal which he wrote while studying in Europe. The author describes and assesses Robinson's contributions to the development of Biblical studies in America, and places him within a wider context of American and European cultural life and history. Although the work is of considerable importance for specialists, it is written for the general reader and should be of interest to anyone concerned with the cultural and religious history of America.
