The Origins of the Alphabet

Text & Thought

The alphabet is one of the world's greatest inventions, and it was invented only once, about 4,000 years ago, maybe by a speaker of Hebrew. We will look at what we know of where the alphabet came from and how it came to be what it is today—and what Jewish thinkers have done with it since.

101, Text & Thought
