DESCRIPTION

The American Journal of Semitic Languages and Literatures was an academic journal published quarterly by the University of Chicago Press. Founded in 1884 by American Semiticist and the University of Chicago’s first president William Rainey Harper (1856–1906) as Hebraica, it acquired its final title in 1895 before being renamed as the Journal of Near Eastern Studies in 1942, with volume numbering restarting at 1.


With an initial emphasis on Old Testament studies, the journal's name change in 1895 reflected the growth and expansion into the study of Near Eastern civilizations. Each issue featured original articles on the archaeology, art, history, literature, languages, and religions of the Near East from prehistory to the early modern period. It also contained reviews of new literature relevant to the field. 


The Internet Archive Collection contains microfilm published between 1884 and 1910.
