Germania Semitica describes linguistic and cultural Semitic influences on Early Germanic at two points in space and time: (1) Fifth to third century Proto-Germanic when a Phoenician, namely Carthaginian, superstrate influenced the lexicon, grammar, writing system, and religion in the Germanic homeland, (2) the pre-Christian British Isles, when Semitic substrates shaped the structure of the Celtic languages as well as, indirectly, English. This book is a must for anyone interested in the origin of Germanic language and culture.
