Abstract

The magic way of thinking and acting belongs to the conspicuous characteristics of the old oriental culture. Threats to mankind, especially diseases, are induced by demons. But these diseases can be avert with the help of the god Enki (Ea) and his son Asalluhi (Marduk). The present collection of 21 spells is a profile through the ritual practice of the cleaning of ill people. The texts are based primarily on manuscripts from the library of Assurbanipal in Ninive (7th century b.c.) . But the some spells are from earlier transcriptions of the 2nd century b.c. A lot of the material in this book is published for the first time. So, this book contributes for the reconstruction of religious literature of the Old Orient.

Abstract

Reading transliterated akkadian texts sometimes is rather difficult, if the akkadian equivalents of the logograms are not given. This first alphabetic index of akkadian logograms offers help now: it contains the akkadian readings of most logograms, so the time consuming detour through the indexes of sign lists can be avoided in most cases. The circa 5000 entries also record the principal meaning of the akkadian word as well as references to sign lists (Borger, Mesopotamisches Zeichenlexikon or Labat, Manuel d’épigraphie akkadienne) or to akkadian dictionaries. In this way the epigraphic as well as the lexical approach to the text is enhanced. The book (written in German) is designed for students who are interested in akkadian literature, but cannot read cuneiform writing or Sumerian. The 2nd edition was thoroughly revised. In particular, R. Borger’s Mesopotamisches Zeichenlexikon is now quoted as the standard sign list for Akkadian.
