Description:

This volume brings together research presented at the 52nd Rencontre Assyriologique Internationale, which took place in Münster between the 17th and 21st of July, 2006. The theme of the 52nd Rencontre was ?War and Peace in the Ancient Near East? Constant alternation between times of war and times of peace was one of the fundamental experiences of ancient Near Eastern peoples. Preparation for and performance of war along with seeking and making peace are discernible in different forms and contexts in the textual and material evidence of the ancient Near East. The theme of the 52nd Rencontre was relevant to scholars from many of the sub-disciplines of ancient Near Eastern research, including Sumerology, Akkadian studies, Hittitology, Ugaritology, and ancient Near Eastern archaeology, as well as to scholars interested in broader research questions pertaining to the history, culture, and languages of the ancient Near East. Among the subjects addressed by the contributions presented at the 52nd Rencontre were questions of military equipment, waging war and ending it (along with the attendant ritual/religious and legal questions), the social and economic background informing the use of military violence between states and groups, war as the continuation of politics by other means, and the perception of and reflections on the relationship between war and peace in literature and art. In addition to these contributions, this volume also includes research presented at the 52nd Rencontre that is not related to the 52nd Rencontre's theme. Bookseller Inventory #

About this title:

Synopsis: Der vorliegende Sammelband vereint die zum Druck eingereichten Beitrage der 52. Rencontre Assyriologique Internationale, die vom 17.-21.07.2006 in Munster stattfand. Als Thema des Kongresses wurde "Krieg und Frieden im Alten Vorderasien" gewahlt. Der standige Wechsel von Kriegs- und Friedenszeiten gehorte zu den Grunderfahrungen der Menschen im Alten Orient. Kriegsvorbereitung und -durchfuhrung sowie Friedenssehnsucht und Friedensschluss sind dabei Themen, die sich in unterschiedlicher Gestalt und in vielfaltigen Zusammenhangen in der textlichen und materiellen Uberlieferung des Alten Vorderasien manifestieren. Das Thema bot Raum fur Beitrage aus der Sicht verschiedener Spezialdisziplinen altorientalistischer Forschung, so der Sumerologie, Akkadistik, Hethitologie und Ugaritistik, der Vorderasiatischen Archaologie wie auch anderer Facher im Bereich der Forschungen zu Geschichte, Kultur und Sprachen des antiken Vorderen Orients. Fragen der militarischen Ausrustung, der Kriegsfuhrung und -beendigung (mit den damit zusammenhangenden religios-rituellen sowie rechtlichen Fragestellungen), die Problematik des gesellschaftlichen und okonomischen Hintergrundes von Kriegen bzw. der Anwendung von militarischer Gewalt zwischen Staaten und Gruppen im Alten Vorderasien, Krieg als Fortsetzung der Politik mit anderen Mitteln sowie die Wahrnehmung und Widerspiegelung des Verhaltnisses von Krieg und Frieden in der Literatur und Kunst u.a.m. waren Themenbereiche von Beitragen auf der Tagung. Neben diesen Vortragen werden hier auch die nicht themengebundenen Beitrage publiziert.
