Welcome, or welcome back, to the BAS Library! Since 1975, the Biblical Archaeology Society has been sharing scholars’ and archaeologists’ enthusiasm and insights for the world of the Bible, and all we can discover about the history of Bible lands and peoples.

This resource contains the entirety of our three magazines:

  • Biblical Archaeology Review since 1975
  • 20 years of Bible Review (1985 to 2005)
  • 8 years of Archaeology Odyssey (1998 to 2006)

We also feature several books; many videos featuring scholars talking about the topics they know best; curated collections to guide you through subjects that have been of particular interest to our readers; and more. Click on a tab to browse, or search by keyword, author, publication, etc.
