Description
One of the world's foremost experts on Assyriology and the religion of ancient Mesopotamia, Jean Bottero first treated this topic in book form in 1952. Revising and greatly expanding his earlier work, Bottero here presents the definitive account of one of the world's oldest known religions.

Bottero begins with brief but thorough introductions to the history of religion, Mesopotamian history, and the available source materials. He then draws on documentary and artistic evidence of hymns, prayers, incantations, and rituals, as well as personal letters, to show how ancient Mesopotamian religion was practiced both in the public and private spheres, and how it developed over the three millennia of its active existence. Finally, he traces the many influences that Mesopotamian religion had on Western civilization, including the Hebrew Bible.

Accessibly written and informed by decades of scholarship, Jean Bottero's Religion in Ancient Mesopotamia will become a classic work on the topic.
