It is the purpose of this essay to study the various interpretations of the three eighth-century prophets, Amos, Hosea, Micah, in an effort to determine their attitude ·toward cultus. In particular the present study will direct itself to the question, “Did these men advocate the complete abolition of sacrifice?” This will of necessity include a consideration of the extent to which each prophet made his position clear. In certain areas the prophets have spoken clearly, in others their attitudes may be inferred. On some points it appears that no tenable conclusions can be drawn.
