Francesca Stavrakopoulou on Asherah etc.

FRANCESCA STAVRAKOPOULOU educates the Daily Mail about Asherah and the (now lost!) Kuntillet Ajrud inscription: Why the BBC's new face of religion believes God had a WIFE.

Nice pictures—both of Francesca and the drawings on the potsherd. For some reason, though, most of the inscription (upper left, where her thumb is) is missing. Steve Wiggins posts a drawing that includes it here.

UPDATE (14 March): Not "lost" after all? More here.
