This monograph explores Yahwistic votive practice in the Hellenistic period. The dedicatory inscriptions from the Yahweh temple on Mount Gerizim are the object of an investigation of Yahwistic votive practice, witnessed in and outside Biblical literature.The research begins the discussion by placing votive practice in a theoretical framework of gift-giving and fills a scholarly void by establishing this practice as an integral part of the sacrificial system in the Hebrew Bible. The Gerizim inscriptions are then analysed in their proper archaeological and religio-historical context.
