Biblical Archaeology, the Limits of Science, and the Borders of Belief - Nina Burleigh

Biblical Archaeology, the Limits of Science, and the Borders of Belief - Nina Burleigh

Nina Burleigh is the author of Unholy Business: A True Tale of Faith, Greed and Forgery in the Holy LandIn this lecture, journalist and author Nina Burleigh examines what Israeli authorities have called "the fraud of the century" -- a scheme to modify archaeological objects or create entirely new ones to make them appear to verify biblical characters or stories. Burleigh will discuss these characters, the scheme to defraud high-end collectors, and the gullible religious public, and how the James Ossuary Case in a small courtroom in Jerusalem has put all of biblical archaeology on trial.Original video here.
