Kings of the Hittites


    DR. HOGARTH has published his Sehweich Lectures for 1924 practically in the form in which they were delivered before the British Academy, his reason being that owing to the still imperfectly published state of the results of excavation, the time has not yet come for fuller treatment. In this he has been wise, for, well argued as are his conclusions, his method of treatment in lecture form serves to emphasise their still extremely tentative character. His kings of the Hittitcs are those of the Biblical narrative, the rulers of the southern Hittites, to whom reference occurs in the Chronicles of the historic age as holders of States to the north of Palestine in the earlier period of the Jewish monarchy. His purpose has been to illustrate their civilisation and to try to discover their origin and racial character.
