"The 'discovery' of the ossuary (bone box) alleged to have contained the skeletal remains of Jesus's earthly brother, James, is now seen as one of the greatest archaeological hoaxes of modern times. This superb collection of essays provides intriguing and compelling discussions of the media hype surrounding the discovery, the scholarly debates it engendered, and the question of why so many people--scholars and lay people alike--were so susceptible to being duped."--Bart Ehrman, author of Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (and Why We Don't Know About Them)
This collection of essays explores the circumstances of an archaeological hoax in which a box of skeletal remains was passed off as belonging to James, the brother of Jesus. Contributors discuss the role of media sensationalism, the use and misuse of religion, and the responsibilities of scholars as public interpreters of discoveries with religious significance.
