  Tophet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Tophet is a location near Jerusalem where according to the Bible the Canaanites sacrificed children to the god Moloch by burning them alive.
It is thought to be a specific geographic location within the valley of Gehenna.
Tophet as the name of the Gehenna site was transferred to the child cemetery in Carthage; the assumption that child sacrifice was also practiced in Carthage is not unanimously accepted by modern scholars and the debate is continuing.

 Child Sacrifice: Where living children sacrificed to the gods of Phoenician Punic Carthage?
The texts of the inscriptions in the Carthage Tophet suggest that the sanctuary was open to everyone, regardless of nationality or social status.
The human remains found in the urns buried in the Tophet were of children recalled to the presence of the gods; that is why they were buried in the sanctuary.
The word "Tophet" can be translated "place of burning" or "roaster." The Hebrew text does not specify that the Judahite victims were buried, only burned, although the "place of burning" was probably adjacent to the place of burial.

 Carthage's Tophet   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The place for depositing the remains is called a "tophet" from a term in the Old Testament, and tophets have been discovered not only at Carthage but at numerous other Phoenician sites in the west.
The Tophet to the south of Carthage and west of the harbors was the area where children (up to 4 years old) were sacrificed and buried.
Some scholars continue to refuse to believe in the practice and to dismiss the ancient literary evidence as mere propaganda, but with the discovery of the physical remains there can be little legitimate doubt.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Moloch
The chief feature of Moloch's worship among the Jews seems to have been the sacrifice of children, and the usual expression for describing that sacrifice was "to pass through the fire", a rite carried out after the victims had been put to death.
The special centre of such atrocities was just outside of Jerusalem, at a place called Tophet (probably "place of abomination"), in the valley of Geennom.
It is not improbable that this worship was revived under Joakim and continued until the Babylonian Captivity.
