Biblical scholars envision now the emergence of Israelite monotheism to be a later gradual process than heretofore has been assumed both by nineteenth-century writings influenced by Darwinian evolution and scholars endorsing the idea of a Mosaic monotheistic "revolution". Scholars suppose that religious development evolved in several progressive stages in the pre-exilic period until the absolute monotheism was achieved in the Babylonian era and subsequent years. These stages include especially the activity of the prophets Eliah and Elisha, the reform of the king Josiah, Deuteronomistic reform and oracles of the Second Isaiah. In the past, many archaeological data, such as Asherah worship, human sacrifices, solar veneration and other religious practices were considered testimony for syncretism between Israelite and Canaanite religions. Now they are recongized as an integral part of Israelite worship in the pre-exilic era.
