The Chronicler's development of ancient Near Eastern royal and temple ideologies is examined-a development that allowed the monarchical ideologies to be applied to Judah long after kingship had ceased. How the Chronicler's portrayal of the relationship between the kings and the Jerusalem cultus allowed monarchical ideologies to be applied to Judah long after kingship had ceased.
