Numerous poetic and ritual texts from the city of Ugarit reveal the rich pantheon of gods and goddesses that were worshiped by the Canaanites during the Late Bronze Age (c. 1600–1200 BCE). Archaeological remains of these rites include burnt animal bones and many other cultic items, such as figurines and votive vessels. These were discovered in tombs, dwellings, and especially within the dozens of temples and sanctuaries of the Canaanite city-states. These temples were the focal points for the Canaanites’ cultic activities, mainly sacrifices and ceremonial feasting. The diverse architectural plans and cultic paraphernalia demonstrate the syncretic and receptive character of the Canaanite religion and ritual practices. These have attracted much attention from Biblical scholars who are searching for similarities and influences between the Late Bronze Age and the proceeding Iron Age. View this paper
