Choose two beliefs or myths and two rituals from each of the three main ancient Middle Eastern religions or religion groups (Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Syro-Palestine). Syro-Palestine includes Judaism and Christianity.
Compare and contrast them. Are they similar, radically different, or some of both? Are there uniformities of belief and ritual across these three traditions, or is each one separate and unique? How does archaeology help us understand these issues? Only the sources attached can be used, no outside sources. The paper must follow one of the paper writing formats, such as the Chicago Manual of Style or the MLA style sheet. It must have footnote citations to works that you cite in the paper, and a Bibliography/Works Cited page.
Do not plagiarize. A footnote is a citation to a work you have consulted in your research for the paper and have actually quoted (cited) in the paper, or have used in your preparation of your paper. A citation can be a direct quote from the source work, or a paraphrase, or simply a reference to an author or a work, something presented in a class lecture, something from Classes, such as a slide or image, etc.
