The discussion with Professor G. Lavas about the Holy Land has a dual objective: On the one hand to give us the opportunity to deal thoroughly with crucial issues of Biblical Archaeology and its Scientology; and on the other, to elevate Biblical Archaeology as a science which seeks the self-consciousness of man as regards memory, history, reality and his own desires.

“It could be most useful, if the researcher of Biblical Archaeology, as a neutral observer, could let reality -finds and testimonies – lighten up the events and restrain himself from final interpretations – which could be postponed in due time -, in case an obstinate or monolithic position could create a disagreement between testimonies and finds”.
