The Ancient Hebrew Alphabet (Video)

By Jeff A. Benner


This video series will examine the history and evolution of the Ancient Semitic/Hebrew alphabet from its early pictographic origins to its modern forms as well as its adoption into the Greek and Latin alphabets. We will also investigate how these ancient pictographic letters were combined to form words, whose letters provide definition to the word itself.
