(p.253) 10 Where May Canaanites Be Found?
The Gift of the Land and the Fate of the Canaanites in Jewish Thought

Katell Berthelot

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses the following questions: In the Hellenistic and Roman period, did Jews consider that there were still “Canaanites” living in the land, or elsewhere? Were the categories “Canaan” and “Canaanites” relevant in any way to Jews at that time? In a more general way, which words did Jewish authors use to name the land and its non-Jewish inhabitants? And does the terminology teach us something about the way(s) Jews conceived of the relationship between Jews and non-Jews in the land? The answers proposed are based on the analysis of Jewish literary works from the Hellenistic and Roman period.
