Corpus Inscriptionum Arabicarum Palaestinae
Editor: Moshe Sharon
Western Palestine is extremely rich in Arabic inscriptions, whose dates range from as early as CE 150 until modern times. Most of the inscriptions date from the Islamic period, for under Islam the country gained particular religious and strategic importance, even though it made up only part of the larger province of Syria.
This historical importance is clearly reflected in the hundreds of inscriptions, the texts of which cover a variety of topics: construction, dedication, religious endowments, epitaphs, Qur'anic texts, prayers and invocations, all now assembled in the Corpus Inscriptionum Arabicarum Palaestinae (CIAP).

The Early Americas: History and Culture
Series Editors: Corinne Hofman, Cristiana Barreto, Nicholas Laluk, Genner Llanes-Ortiz, and Karoline Noack.
A forum for new interdisciplinary studies on the pre-colonial and early colonial period history of indigenous cultures on the American continent.
The indigenous cultures of North, Middle and South America, including the Caribbean, have a diverse and fascinating history, reaching from the early pre-colonial past until the present. Modern multidisciplinary research investigates many social, political, economic and religious aspects, such as the population movements, the original development of agriculture, and sedentary communities.
Given the importance of cultural continuity in the present, this series pays further attention to living traditions and oral literature, as well as to the present-day issues of cultural values and indigenous rights.
