Title: Mesopotamian Divination Texts GMTR 7 Sources...
Book Condition: New
Divination is one of the best-documented intellectual and religious endeavours of Ancient Mesopotamia. Texts pertaining to divination appear already at the beginning of the 2nd millennium BCE, and the tradition continued up until the very end of cuneiform culture. But the lifespan of Mesopotamian divination is much longer than two millennia. It gestated in the 3rd millennium, and remnants live on to this day in astrology and astronomy. This volume is dedicated to the sources from the 1st millennium. They are rich and varied, consisting of technical and theoretical works, explanatory texts, commentaries as well as ephemeral sources for the practical use of divination in the life of king and commoner. Far from being the preserve of a very few specialists, divination has become an important topic of study, with new text editions and studies appearing every year. This book provides a survey of the sources, as well as an introduction to the history, theory, and practice of the various divination genres. Bookseller Inventory # KOCMESOPO
