Description Abstract The book opens with a discussion of why representations of film matter, why they matter to film scholars, why they matter to historians, biblical scholars, classicists, and archaeologists, and why they matter to the public that watches them. It also provides some orientation regarding how films create meaning and how the stories and other elements of movie are and can be interpreted. Some of the key themes in the representation of Egypt, the Near East, the biblical world, Greece, and Rome are introduced.
