Kleber examines the relationship of the temple of Eanna in Uruk and the Babylonian kings during the Late-Babylonian period, resulting from an in-depth analysis of 7000 texts, 2400 of which are hitherto unpublished. An overview of the history of the administrative structure of Eanna (chapter 2) and of the influence of the kings on the economy of the temple (chapter 3) is followed by the central part of the study: the various forms of taxes, tributes, and obligations the temple, its staff, and its employees had to pay, to deliver, and to perform (chapter 4): Special attention is paid to the royal building activity, which the Eanna temple had to support throughout the Babylonian Empire (chapter 4.7). The kings in exchange acted as protector of the divine service in Uruk and could profit directly by the sacrifices (chapter 7). Bookseller Inventory #

About this title:

Synopsis: Kleber untersucht das Verhaltnis vom Tempel Eanna in Uruk und den spatbabylonischen Konigen anhand einer eingehenden Analyse von 7000 Texten, von denen 2400 bisher unveroffentlicht sind. Einem Uberblick uber die Geschichte der Verwaltungsstruktur von Eanna (Kapitel 2) folgt ein Einblick in den Einfluss der Konige auf die Wirtschaft des Tempels (Kapitel 3). Im zentralen Teil der Studie werden folgende Themen diskutiert: verschiedene Formen von Steuern, Abgaben, die Pflichten der Tempel, sein Personal und seine Mitarbeiter (Kapitel 4). Besondere Aufmerksamkeit wird auf die konigliche Bautatigkeit gelegt, die den Eanna-Tempel wahrend des babylonischen Reiches (Kapitel 4.7) zugute kam. Im Austausch dazu fungierten die Konige als Beschutzer der Gottesdienste in Uruk und konnte direkt durch die Opfer profitieren (Kapitel 7).
