This bibliography cites works that treat archaeological and literary evidence bearing on the layout, design, and physical accoutrements of the temples of Israel, Egypt, Mesopotamia, as well as the subsequent temple systems which belonged to the Graeco-Roman world. In addition, it treats certain features of the temple, such as the role of the priesthood in the operation of the temple, the sacred vestments of the priests, sacrifice and other priestly rituals, the cosmic associations of the temple, and the temple as the locus of kingly authority and the site of his coronation. The bibliography is divided into specific categories, such as Temples of Jerusalem, Temples of Egypt, Priesthood, Sacrifice, and others. Within each of these categories the relevant bibliography is listed alphabetically by author.
