Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Ya know, the times of that book everyone talks about.

Can overlap with Ancient Egypt (Genesis and Exodus) and Ancient Rome (the entire New Testament), but is usually centred around the area of Ancient Israel—Jerusalem, especially. Home to staff-wielding doom-croaking prophets, Philistines, miracles, and loads of people in big robes who sit tableau-like around tables or rocks, looking awe-filled and reverent.

There are many biblical events disputed with regards to date or accuracy. Most historians date the Israelite Exodus to 1400 BC (there is no other record for the Exodus other than the Bible, but the official Egyptian records DO list a suddenly smaller Israelite population), and the rest of the Old Testament from 1000 BC to 500 BC. The New Testament had the death of Christ dated around 30 AD. Keep in mind that very few dates are accurate due to the various calendar systems used.
