  • This research aims at the collection of data and a rianalysis of the Iranian linguistic influence on the Hebrew Bible and the literary and epigraphic corpora of Qumranic Hebrew and Achaemenid and Middle Aramaic. Due attention shall also be paid to the much-debated issue of Iranian loanwords in Late Biblical Hebrew and Biblical Aramaic whose original meaning seems to have been lost or semantically bleached in the Hellenistic age, in order to reassess the attempts purporting to date books such as Esther or Esdras to the Persian period based on their alleged quotation of official Achaemenid documents. In order to draw up as complete a picture as possible of the lexical impact of Old & Middle Iranian on Aramaic and Hebrew approximately from the 5th cent. BCE to the late 2nd cent. CE, a few instances of loan translations of Old Iranian administrative formulae or idioms shall also be taken into account.
